Garlic was born September 30, 1998. At that time I needed a good molecular
visualization program and almost the only thing at hand was RasMol. I had
some hard time with RasMol so I tryed to adapt it to my needs. However, I
realized that it is very hard to read and change RasMol source code, so I
decided to write my own molecular visualization program.
Further, I decided to learn programming for the X window system, and this is
my first serious program written for X11.
Since 1997 I use GNU/Linux software, so I concluded that it would be fair to
add something useful and modern to the existing collection of free software
because this software significantly improved my working conditions.
