first of all thanks to all those who wrote to me with advice
and comments about vitesse - ta.
reading this newer vitesse thread, there is something that i
have noticed with regard to LINKAGE usage and that is that i
know some groups just quote one of the original LINKAGE references,
- say the PNAS one - when they are actually using FASTLINK, becuase
that's the "famous" reference that everyone uses. i have had
the occasional problem trying to get an fellow author to use
say, 3 references, when they only want one for the analysis
software methods section of a paper. so, just because a
citations database says 50%+ people using original LINKAGE
only, don't expect that this figure is 100% genuine...
in the end i did use VITESSE for my multipoint stuff and
FASTLINK for 2-point stuff and will have to quote god-knows
how many references in the paper.
