Which is the MULTIPLE ALIGNMENT code that can be INTERFACED most EASILY ?

Wed Jul 30 14:53:31 EST 1997

I'm eager to hear your experiences and advice regarding multiple alignment 
software, and interfacing to it. Just reply straight away, do it now :)

I'm looking for easily interface'able code for 

a) the heuristic guide-tree driven alignment of 10-50 very short 
(10-20 residues) biosequences,

b) the alignment of 2 profiles (using a profile alignment like ClustalW
does; again, the length is small),

c) the optimal or near-optimal alignment of such sequences using sum-of-pairs.

E.g., would you recommand ClustalW / MSA ? Or MAP ? Or MultAlin ? 
Any other tools you tried ?
Do you have unreleased code for the task ?

all the best wishes,
