Re: _item_related.function_code

Dear John,

There seems to be a further inconsistency with these definitions.  Both the *_adp and *_occupancy list (only) *_posn as an alternate related item, and also the *_posn definition lists itself as a related item.  I suspect that the intention here was to rather list _atom_site.refinement_flags as the related item (as is the case in core_cif.dic). In addition, it would seem more logical to make the related function here 'replaces' rather than 'alternate', since it seems that it is the intention of the DDL2 specification (as I understand it) that 'replacedby' and 'replaces' are to be opposites of each other.

Thanks,

Richard

Hi John,

We will correct the inconsistent use of 'replaces' when the dictionary is next updated.

Thanks for pointing out the problem.

John
