The command-line program CAP (CONTIG ANALYSIS Program (?)) performs
amazingly well, is VERY simple to use and is freeware from:

(I believe it's also incorporated into Don Gibert's Seqpup)

Also, there are 2 other restriction enzyme analysis programs that might be
of interest.
1) Bruce Fristensky's 'intrest' and 'bachrest' programs @

2) 'tacg', my simple (and yet strangely compelling B)  command-line prog
for unixy systems @

ftp://mamba.bio.uci.edu/pub/tacg            (source code and binaries for
                                             several systems)

Soon coming to a Web Browser near you (far easier than doing separate
GUI's for each platform...), much like the aforementioned Webcutter.
