PDB_EXTRACT is under constant development as a tool to allow the creation of mmCIF files from a variety of current macromolecular structure determination packages. The version distributed here is version 3.004 of September 2007. Users are recommended to obtain the latest release from the Rutgers site of the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics (RCSB) if at all possible. Comments should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An online version of PDB_EXTRACT can be accessed at http://pdb-extract.rcsb.org.
PDB_EXTRACT has been integrated into CCP4 and the CCP4i interface (Version 5.0 and above). Users can run PDB_EXTRACT under the CCP4 environment.
A comprehensive list of supported applications detailing software category, version, and references is available.

Language and platform
The software is written in C++ and should run on versions of Unix with suitable C++ compilers. Binary distributions are provided for Linux, SGI, Sun, OSF and Mac OS X platforms. The binary distributions also include the structure checking module PROCHECK.
- Installation from source distribution: For Unix-type installations, copy the gzipped tar file pdb-extract-v3.004-prod-src.tar.gz into an empty directory; gunzip and extract files using the Unix tar utility. Set appropriate environment variables (see detailed installation notes); build the application using the make utility; create binary data files. E.g.
cp pdb-extract-v3.004-prod-src.tar.gz /p/q/r; cd /p/q/rIf gzip or tar are unavailable, individual source files may be saved to the build directory.
cat pdb-extract-v3.004-prod-src.tar.gz | gunzip | tar xvf -
RCSBROOT=/p/q/r/pdb-extract-v3.004-prod-src; export RCSBROOT
PATH="$RCSBROOT/bin:"$PATH; export PATH
