SEQtools context sensitive help form.
The context sensitive help includes six short descriptions of how to perform various tasks in SEQtools.
Unfortunately the descriptions have not been revised for a long time and may thus not be correct in all details.
This problem will be handled at a later stage.

My ambition has been for long time to write more animated demos. This may happen rainy day in the future...
This form lists currently available auxiliary programs, both NCBI and emboss programs as well as
external programs (GeneDoc and TreeView). The same form is used if you need to update SEQtools or the auxiliary
and emboss programs. Finally the form includes a utility Data from old seqtools folders which causes SEQtools
to scan your hard disk for data files from previous installations of SEQtools.
When downloading and installing updates (SEQtools, auxiliary and emboss programs) be sure to follow the instructions carefully.
The SEQtools about form listing SEQtools version, user name and license type. For student

The bug report form. It is a great help in correcting bugs that you give me as many details
as possible, preferably a precise description of how to reproduce the error.
Often I receive descriptions like: "When I used SEQtools yesterday it behaved very strangely. Could you please have a look at this problem". Obviously this kind of descriptions makes it extremely difficult to localise a potential problem.
Identifying hard-to-find problems may require that you send me the sequence giving rise to the misbehaviour. In such cases your sequences are deleted immediately after the problem is corrected to avoid confidentiality problems.
In nearly all cases a bug, properly described, is corrected immediately and an updated version of SEQtools is made available on the download page of the web.
At irregular intervals a newsletter is issued. This happens mostly when a serious bug is detected (and normally) corrected to give users a chance to update and thus avoid wasting time on a SEQtools version containing a known bug.
