Describes CIF, the data exchange standard of crystallography. Provides: information for scientists who wish to record or use the results of a single-crystal or powder diffraction experiment; the data ontology necessary for designing interoperable computer applications; accompanying software including machine-readable CIF dictionaries, libraries and utility programs.
An essential guide and reference to CIF for programmers, data managers handling crystal-structure information and practising crystallographers.
The ISTable package is a collection of classes for managing table objects. This class provides the foundation for many PDB applications which parse, search and manage mmCIF data and dictionaries. This class uses an improved indexing scheme relative to its predecessor class SSTABLE. The package is also known as CIFTable.
If you wish to install and use this software you should download the most up-to-date version from the above Web site. The links below are to copies which are suitable for browsing or for use if the primary Web site is not available. However, they may be out of date and lack the full functionality of the latest version.
ISTable is distributed from the Rutgers site of the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) and forms an important component of the software systems used in the Protein Data Bank. Comments should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The software is written in C++ and should run on versions of Unix with suitable C++ compilers.
cp cif-table-obj-v8.011-prod-src.tar.gz /g/h/i; cd /g/h/iIf gzip or tar are unavailable, individual source files may be saved to the build directory.
gunzip cif-table-obj-v8.011-prod-src.tar.gz; tar xvf cif-table-obj-v8.011-prod-src.tar
