Hi All,
I wanted to look at my translation function, but don't have Mathematica.
I looked at the X-PLOR faq:

I couldn't get this to work straightforwardly because it needed the grid
dimensions of the 3dmatrix file, which weren't obvious from any of the
X-PLOR output.

Anyway, I've written a perl script which will take a translation or
rotation 3dmatrix as input and output either the grid (for use in
mapman) or an O map (using mapman).

If anyone's interested, its on
