WinGX Program Features
- Utility programs to write initial model files, name.INS and STRUCT.CIF.
Utility programs to operate on these files and import/export other file
- Programs for data reduction of Enraf Nonius CAD4 and Siemens P4
diffractometer files. Support for KappaCCD, Bruker SMART/APEX, Rigaku data and a GUI
- Graphical representation of the
reciprocal lattice and
- Numerous absorption corrections, including analytical, gaussian
quadrature, spherical-crystal, psi-scans, DIFABS, XABS2 and MULTISCAN
(Blessings method for multiple equivalents).
- Structure solution by DIRDIF-08, SUPERFLIP, SHELXS86, PATSEE and SIR-92, and
interfaces to SIR-97/SIR-2004/SHELXS97.
- Structure refinement with SHELXL-97 (externally available)
- Fourier maps, contouring, XHYDEX location of hydrogen atoms.
- Several graphics programs, including CAMERON,
PLUTON. Interfaces to SCHAKAL and RasMOL, and the ray-tracing programs
See examples of POV-Ray rendered pictures here.
- Programs for analysis of crystallographic results, including PLATON,
- Publication of CIF based files and tables,validation of CIF files using IUCr CIF
checking algorithms & PLATON checking tools. Interfaces to word processing packages
- User modifiable interfaces to other MS-DOS or MS-Windows programs.
- A very useful set of introductory
TUTORIALS for WinGX
has been made available at the CCP14 site (thanks to Lachlan Cranswick). The DOOBRY test data
set for these tutorials is available here.
- WinGX may be used across networks. All WinGX programs accept either DOS or
UNIX style ASCII files.
WinGX is provided free of charge for academic, scientific, educational and
non-commercial users, provided its use is acknowledged.
