proof - routine to convert a crystallographic information file (CIF) into
TeX using quasar and CIFTEX.
[-option ...] input-file-name
is a routine developed to read a Crystallographic Information File
(CIF) and process it using the quasar(1) and ciftex(1) utilities
to produce TeX output suitable for production of proofs or
preprints. The routine first scans the CIF for the relevant data block
names required to build a composite request list of data items.
This request list is fed into the quasar utility to select a
subset of data items required for a crystal structure paper in
Section C. Output from this utility is fed directly into ciftex along
with various option flags.
Operate in "galley proof" mode, i.e. set using PostScript fonts in a narrow
column. This is of use only where a suitable PostScript driver such as dvitps(1) is
Include hydrogen atoms in the coordinate tables. (The default is
not to include hydrogen atoms - in which case the H-atom cordinates in
the output TeX file are commented out). This flag is simply passed across
The name of the directory containing the standard request lists,
REQ1, REQ2 and REQ3. If the files reside in the current directory the
should be used. The default directory is
