Does anyone know of code/ references for tests of normality ?

I am aware of qqnorm plots, Kolmogorov Smirnoff and chi squared
goodness of fit tests. I need procedures that give a specific p-values,
and preferably are sensitive to alternatives with fat tails (which is not
true for K-S in my experience).

Many thanks for any advice - I will summarise responses that
are sent to me only.
