blupf90test: This is a beta version for a combined program of airemlf90 and blupf90
Gibbs sampler
OPTIONs for priors and degrees of belief, for restarting from the last sampling, and for storing solutions and SD with or without fixed (known) variances
gibbs1f90: Faster than GIBBS2F90 without missing traits

gibbs3f90: With heterogeneous residual variances

thrgibbs3f90: Threshold + linear model with heterogeneous residual variances
gibbsf90test: This is a beta version for a combined Gibbs program of gibbs2f90, gibbs3f90, thrgibbs1f90, and thrgibbs3f90

PostGibbs Analysis
postgibbsf90: Statistics and graphics for convergence diagnosis and postGibbs analysis (use postgibbsold for old Gibbs sampler programs). The graphs are created with gnuplot, which must be preinstalled.

Accuracy (approximation)
accf90: Accuracy (reliability) for a large number of animals (available only under some conditions)
accf90GS: Accuracy (reliability) for a large number of animals with genotypes (available only under some conditions); requires options
