Alejandro Schaffer (Rice University) reported in the February issue of Linkage Newsletter that since May 1993 his group has been distributing faster versions of the genetic linkage analysis programs in LINKAGE 5.1. Dubbed FASTLINK, Version 2.2 has corrected several bugs in LINKAGE 5.1 and offers such enhancements as more dynamic memory allocation; additional diagnostics to detect user errors; crash recovery for LINKMAP and MLINK as well as LODSCORE and ILINK; information about FASTLINK portability; and a document explaining the preprocessor program UNKNOWN. To retrieve the code for FASTLINK 2.2, ftp to ftp softlib.sc.rice.edu; log in as anonymous and leave full e-mail address as password. Retrieve the file fastlink.tar.Z from the directory pub/fastlink; outside of ftp, use the commands uncompress fastlink.tar.Z and tar xvf fastlink.tar.
FASTLINK is also available now for DOS; retrieve the file README.DOS for more details. Contact: Schaffer (713/527-8101 ext. 3813, Fax: /285-5930, email@example.com)
