Ummm, gosh Alan. You embarrass me. :-) Doing the port was really
comparatively little effort. Credit should go to the EMBOSS team, who have
produced a mature, well structured, standards compliant and therefore very
portable product. The same cannot be said for most of the software tools in
bioscientific fields - believe me, I've tried porting some things recently...
But, uhh, thanks. :-) 'Tis much appreciated.
