Here we use

   PRIMER: A Computer Program for Automatically Selecting PCR Primers
           Version 0.5, May 1991

   by Stephen E. Lincoln, Mark J. Daly, and Eric S. Lander
      MIT Center for Genome Research and
      Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research
      Nine Cambridge Center

in conjunction with

  !***  ToPrimer  **************************************************************

and a self-made DCL-command file (yes, on VMS; but it should be very simple
to convert the DCL into a UNIX script). All this together fits perfcetly into
the GCG environment and people are quite content with it.
