Note for Linux/Unix users: The downloaded archives contain the seaview executable itself, an example data file, a .html file, and 4 other programs (muscle, clustalo, phyml, Gblocks) that seaview drives. These 4 programs and the .html file can either be left in the same directory as seaview, or be put in any directory of your PATH.
