PRETTYBOX was written by Rick Westerman, and is is included in EGCG (not GCG). 
There is also a program PRETTYPLOT in EGCG that draws boxes but does not
include shading.

EGCG 8.0 is available for silicon graphics, DEC alpha and Sun (Solaris)
from ftp.sanger.ac.uk in directory pub/pmr/egcg8

This is a "pre-beta" release, which means that the EGCG team is still making
changes and cleaning up some loose ends.

The VMS version also exists, but still needs work - that is the main reason
we are still in a "pre-beta" stage.
