BKchem is a free molecular drawing program.
For more info on program capabilities, install instructions etc. see
documentation in directory "doc" in the main BKchem directory or the BKchem
website on http://zirael.org/bkchem/
BKchem is free software and is distributed under GNU GPL. The program is
provided as is without warranty of any kind. For details see the
file "gpl.txt" in main bkchem directory.
For installation instructions see the file INSTALL in main BKchem directory.
NOTE: Starting with the version 0.9.0-pre1 I ship piddle sources together with
bkchem. Piddle is a library provided under the GPL license and seems to be dead
at least 2 years. Therefore I have decided to put it inside bkchem sources and
distribute any eventual additions this way. In case I will make any major changes
I will release piddle as a standalone library.
NOTE: Starting with the version 0.10.0-pre1 I ship Pmw (http://pmw.sourceforge.net/)
sources (version 1.2) together with bkchem.
I had to make some minor fixes in Pwm and as it is a library provided under the GPL
license and seems to be dead I have decided to put it inside bkchem sources and
distribute the fixed version this way.
NOTE: I bundle the official InChI software from IUPAC in a binary form together
with BKchem in my Windows binary builds. All the credit for this nice piece of
software goes to its creators.
