vax-to-mac graphic output

One option is to use an old hypercard stack of mine called
HPGL2PICT, which should be available at 


You then set your GCG graphics output with 'setplot'
to produce an HPGL format outputfile, then move that
file to a Mac and read it in w/ hp2pict stack.  This
will draw it in PICT format, which you can copy to a
MacDraw kind of program.

A second, perhaps better option for RNA 2ndary structure
is to use one of my programs for drawing those:


These will read RNA 2ndary structure files in the CT or .connect 
form use by GCG.  The second one is a more complex
2ndary structure editor, and will allow you to do MacDraw
type editing of the structure.
