The EGCG "Extended GCG" programs are available as a pre-beta release
from ftp.sanger.ac.uk in directory pub/pmr/egcg8 (or pub/pmr/egcg8vms
for a VMS backup saveset version).

We are still working on some of the programs, including PRETTYPLOT,
but in general everything works with a little help from our support

PRETTYPLOT includes David Mathog's enhancement's from CalTech. They
are very useful - I suspect you would miss them :-)
