Do not forget the program BOXSHADE, by Kay Hofmann, also available from the
EMBL with ftp. (ftp.embl-heidelberg.de)
It it very similar to Prettybox but does not follow the GCG syntax. The input
can be a GCG .msf , a clustal .aln or a maligned data file. The realy good
thing is the out put which can be a Postcript file, an EPS but also send to
a REGIS, a color SIXEL or even a VT terminal.
