Where can I get PISE and also the new interface under development?

I've very recently started working in Bioinformatics. Sometime back (when
I had only heard about GCG and didn't know of anything called EMBOSS) I
made a small program for Chaos-Game-Representation. It is an interactive
program using svgalib on Linux console and can read DNA/RNA sequences, has
a choice of number of points to plots (starting and ending), random plot,
probability and percentage of points, shows a grid, sequences, probability
for random plot, printing to PNG file etc. and is very colorful. I tested
it against 33million bases and it plots that in 14 seconds and prints to
file instantaneously on a normal PC. It is currently under LGPL (binary
under GPL). Is it possible to include this in EMBOSS. I plan to port it to
Mesa to make the program platform independent and also add a command line
mode. I do not know anything about AJAX or ACD yet but am trying to learn.
The program is available at
and from my website below.

Hoping that you'll like the program and include it in EMBOSS,
