I wouldn't use Pointer myself (there are lots of more recent packages*), but look at the examples in and the manual, which is in the book:

Morton N.E., Rao D.C & Lalouel J-M (1983). Methods in Genetic Epidemiology. Karger
PO Box, CH-4009 Basel (Switzerland).
ISBN 3-8055-3668-2 which you will find in many academic libraries.
