We have made a client/server setup for this software to have the client run 
as program in the GCG package, on all GCG-supported platforms, under WPI
if you like. This allows internet users to access EXPLORA from arbitrary
hosts on the internet. Details and source code for the client is on 
ftp://ftp.switch.ch/mirror/embnet-ch/bioftp-sw/ in the explora directory.
Screen trace of the text version is appended below.

EXPLORA predicts various features of yeast DNA sequences. It was written by
Angelos KALOGEROPOULOS, Centre Universitaire d'Orsay, France. The program
runs via the Hierarchical Access System for Sequence Libraries in Europe
(HASSLE, (C) BioComputing Basel 1995).

 Explora with what query sequence ?  genembl:scchriii

 What should I call the output file (* Scchriii.explora *) ?

 Did you already receive documentation (* yes *) ?
