Hi,
 
I'm creating a list of molecular graphic packages for the "Frequently Asked
Questions" of the Computational Chemistry List.
 
The programs must be able to display a molecular structure from Cartesian,
internal, or fractional coordinates. 
 
A first version of the database is available in the pub/vdvk directory at
netcom5.netcom.com and at the osc server.
The actual list of programs described in the database is :
Subject: PC MOBY
Subject: Unix/VMS AMPAC with Graphical User Interface
Subject: UNIX MOIL-View
Subject: SGI INTERCHEM
Subject: Unix, VMS, POSIX, DOS, LINUX, SUN-OS : WHAT IF
Subject: Macintosh CSC_Chem3D_Plus
Subject: Mac Ball & Stick
Subject: Mac PC  ALCHEMY III
Subject: PC STR3DI.EXE, Ver. 6.30
Subject: CRAY/SGI/X-Window UniChem
 
 
If you are an author or distributor of such program, could you please send me
the appended form.
If you are aware of other programs, could you please forward this message to
the author or distributor of the missing software.
 
 
Thanks in advance for your cooperation,
 
Didier Vanderveken

The format of the database is like a mailbox. You are able to read it with
your mail reader. I would like to limit my job to the merging of all emails.
Anonymous posting will not be accepted and your email address will appear
in the database. 
 
The subject line MUST be the type of computer (UNIX, PC, Mac) and the name of
the program, like: UNIX MyProgram 
 
Feel free to remove a line or to duplicate a line. Each line must start with
one of the defined keyword. If you would like to see more keywords, send me a
separate email.
