Dear All,

Certain definitions in the mmcif dictionary (e.g. _atom_site_anisotrop.id) do not contain the itemsá_item.category_id or _item_linked.parent_name. Without these data items, how is it possible to identify programmatically that _atom_site_anisotrop.id belongs to the _atom_site_anisotrop category and that it is a pointer to _atom_site.id (without examining every save frame?

For quick reference here is the definition in question:
;              This data item is a pointer to _atom_site.id in the ATOM_SITE
    _item.name                  '_atom_site_anisotrop.id'
    _item.mandatory_code          yes
    _item_aliases.alias_name    '_atom_site_aniso_label'
    _item_aliases.dictionary      cif_core.dic
    _item_aliases.version         2.0.1
