.TH "DRAWXTL" "1" "2009/09/27" "drawxtl" "DRAWxtl User Manual"

.SH "NAME"
drawxtl \- display crystal structures on ordinary computer hardware

.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.B drawxtl
.RI [ filename ]

.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.B drawxtl
reads a basic description of the crystal structure, which includes unit-cell
parameters, space group, atomic coordinates, thermal parameters or a Fourier
map, and outputs a geometry object that contains polyhedra, planes, lone-pair
cones, spheres or ellipsoids, bonds, iso-surface Fourier contours and the
unit-cell boundary.
.PP
Four forms of graphics are produced:
.IP \(bu 4
an OpenGL window for immediate viewing
.IP \(bu 4
the Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-RAY) scene language for
publication-quality drawings
.IP \(bu 4
the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) for dissemination across the
Internet
.IP \(bu 4
Postscript rendering of the OpenGL window for those who want high-quality
output but do not have POV-RAY installed

.SH "OPTIONS"
There are no command line options to use.

.SH "FILES"
.TP
.I ~/\.drawxtlrc
Per user configuration file.
.PP
A short tutorial about this file and configuring \fBdrawxtl\fP is available
online at \fI\%http://home.att.net/~larry.finger/drawxtl/configure.htm\fP.

.SH "BUGS"
When opening a structures (\fI.str\fP) file, \fBdrawxtl\fP needs write
permissions in the directory the file is located in. Otherwise it will
return an error ("\fBCannot open structures files.\fP").

.SH "SEE ALSO"
A FAQ and a manual are available online in PDF and HTML format at the
\fBDRAWxtl\fP homepage at \fI\%http://home.att.net/~larry.finger/drawxtl/\fP.

.SH "CITATION"
