Assuming you picked up EGCG from the EMBL server, and not GCGEMBL (that
supports GCG 6.0), and you are running GCG 7.2 or 7.3 you should have
no problems.

If you are running GCG 8.0, then EGCG is not yet supported. We have a beta
test version for Irix 5.2, and will begin OpenVMS testing shortly.

Instant access violations in EGCG almost always mean incompatibility
with the GCG version, but you don't say what other EGCG programs do.

You should contact me directly for more information about your problem.
