It seems that many people are unaware that there is an anonymous ftp site for
several of programs I have helped develop, including the programs for the
Affected-Pedigree-Member (APM) method of linkage analysis, the SLINK and
FASTSLINK simulation programs, and others.  The site is:

   Brief description of files available on watson.hgen.pitt.edu

fastslink.tar.Z  : Fast version of SLINK 
                   SLINK as modified by Alejandro Schaffer and Daniel Weeks

cintmax.tar.Z    : Linkage analysis under mapping functions

simapm.tar.Z     : SLINK-based simulation program for APM method
                   (Unstable Unix-hack -- use at own risk)

pedprep.tar.Z    :  Program for converting a MENDEL-format pedigree
		    file ('pedm.dat') to a Pedigree/Draw file for
		    graphical display on a Macintosh.

linkmend.tar.Z   : Program for converting LINKAGE-format files
		   to MENDEL-format files.

sim.tar          : SIMLINK-based simulation program for APM method
                   (Since this requires a modified version of
		    SIMLINK, this is not available to the general
		    public without prior permission).

apm.tar.Z        : Old version of the APM programs (obsolete)
