Hi Phoebe,

We have already implemented this feature in the new version of X-PLOR.
We will be glad that some users give it a pre-trial with the new version.

   { anisotropic B scaling to alter the old scaling method  }
   { the linear scale constant is in "$K2" and the B tensor }
   { is in "$B2_11, $B2_22, $B2_33, $B2_12, $B2_13, $B2_23" }   

      set1=fobs  k1=-1 b1=0
      selection=(2.0 <= d <= 6.0 and 0.1 <= ampl(fobs))

   { decalre a reciprocal object ANISOB to store the scaling factors }
   declare name=anisob domain=reciprocal type=real end
   do (anisob=$K2*exp(-( $B2_11*h*h*$astar*$astar
                                 )/4.0)) ( all )
   { apply the anisotropic B scale to fcalc }
   do (fcalc=anisob*fcalc) ( all )

For details, please check with the x-plor www home page:
"", look for "group/people/jiansheng_jiang",
and look at the example files "anisoB_scale.*" in the subdirectory.
(the files may be copied onto the www pages by an overnight)

If the R value was increased by the anisotropic scaling, there
were probably something wrong.
