Dear Biomch-L readers,

Following the posting of draft 4.1 of the ISB S&TC's long-awaited Standardi-
zation proposal, here is the README file with instructions for file retrieval
and processing. Getting all these different versions properly stored and
retrievable was a lengthy exercise in standardization and communication
problems by itself, with MS-Dos, Macintosh, VAX/VMS, VAX/Ultrix, and IBM
platforms each imposing their own constraints; this explains the one-month
delay since version 4.1 was finalised: various versions have already been
available for some time.

At the end of his posting, Peter Cavanagh indicates that he anticipates
private comments at CELOS, by letter, tel/fax, and/or email. Hopefully,
public comments on Biomch-L will be considered, too?
