The programs support mixed models with multiple-correlated effects, multiple animal models and dominance.

Most of the programs now support being called with the parameter file as an argument, e.g.

 blupf90 renf90.par 

This avoids typing the name of the file in interactive or doing the trick.

 echo renf90.par | blupf90
