There have been several postings regarding the merits and problems with
the WPI interface to GCG.

I personaaly find it a joy to use, though as Andy Law says, it is not
always intuitive.  His example of adding multiple sequences is an
obvious one.  Another  example of awkwardness (in my experience) with
wpi is starting a fresh working list, im sure there is an easier way of
starting a new list.  

Aditionally if you are working on several sequencing projects, i find it
irritating to take you always to the last one.  Perhaps it requires a
memory bank of the most recent used working lists as in MS Word or

Anyway, since the introduction of WPI within the Institute, several
people have taqken the leap from Dos programs to using GCG, since WPI
will suggest which program to use.

Lets hope WPT will improve  with the release of GCG9.???
