As everyone says, use F2MTZ. A couple of small points..
1) No, you can't use an I format specifier, but integers can be read
in no problem as e.g. F4.0
2) In reply to Dave's comment on removing column labels such as
"SIGMA=": judicious use of e.g. 7X format specifier should solve
These are both shown in the above example FORMAT.
$CEXAM/unix/runnable/mtz2various.sh + f2mtz.sh distributed with
the CCP4 suite give an explicit X-PLOR example.
