The version of fastacheck in the gcg distribution is and old one
that has some ldummy lines in it. The new version of the code -
same as in the VMS distribution - has been fixed and is in the
latest release of EGCG for VMS. I just compiled this one under
IRIX and it works quite well.

Since the EGCG team still has some problems with the distribution
of EGCG for UNIX I will post this version to bionet.software.gcg
and bionet.software.sources. Please excuse me for using bandwidth
with these.
