The answer is that one has been promised and is forthcoming at some future date.
In the meantime there is a shell program base on the GCG FOLD program that I have
devised for analyzing oligonucleotide interactions to help optomize primer pairs.
This was published in BioTechniques 13: 914-917 (1992). I would be happy to
e-mail anyone a copy of the program and some notes which I have compiled about
other programs which I have found useful in addition to the shell program.
