[Staden] invalid command name "open_db"

Hello, staden-linux-1-6-0 here.

It seems that 'open_db' is missing from this release?!

I tried "find $STADENROOT -name open_db" to no avail ... (and yes,
$STADENROOT is set correctly). I was going through $STADENROOT/course/
unix_docs/course_unix.pdf, and I got as far as page 30 (36), when gap4
failed with the error:

- Report from 'Gap4 shotgun assembly' -
ERR: Failed to open database testdb.0.
ERR: "invalid command name "open_db""
ERR: Aborting.
invalid command name "open_db"

                       ***   Processing finished   ***

Will someone not float forth with a solution? Or should I go back from
whence I came? *1

GAH! Reading that document these last few days is making me talk

Googling around makes it look like 'open_db' should be an executable
binary distributed with the Staden package and located under
$STADENROOT/linux-bin/ ... However, in my case its missing... is this
an anomaly, or an issue with this release?

Thanks anyone for any suggestions,
