PARST96 is a program for the calculation of a variety of structural parameters
from atomic coordinates, from X-ray, neutron, theoretical calculations...
It is written in Fortran 77, thus can be compiled on a variety of
machines as long as they possess a Fortran compiler.
See J. Appl. Crystallogr. 1995, 659.
The available files are:
The description of
what these programs do and how to use them is given as comments at the
head of the source codes.
- PARST96.FOR for the analysis of the molecular geometry,
- PARSTCIF.FOR to create a CIF from the output of PARST
- PREP93.FOR to create the input file for PARST from the *.lst
output file of SHELXL-93
- ORDRIFL.FOR to check the Laue class and systematic extinctions
- CHANGDAT.FOR to modify: (1) the *.hkl file of intensities, or (2)
the file *.ins input of SHELXL-93, or (3) the file input for PARST
- CSDPARS.FOR to create the input file for PARST from an FDAT file
of Cambridge Structural Database.
The source files can be compiled directly on a PC under DOS, or
on a UNIX machine working in foreground or, with smal changes, in
background. Compilation can be carried out also on every machine
equipped with suitable FORTRAN77 compiler. Binaries for DOS are also
