Documentation for the rf program is below, with links to related programs in the "see also" section.

{version = 1.08; (* of rf.p 2000 June 13}

(* begin module describe.rf *)
   rf: calculate Rfrequency

   rf(input: in, output: out)

   input: interactive input from the user
   output: messages to the user

   calculate Rfrequency as

   Rf = - log (number of binding sites / genome size)

   where the log is to the base 2, giving the result in bits.

   The program depends on interactive procedures on a particular computer
   and so may need to be modified on transportation.
