Online Manual

GRASP is a graphics program for displaying surface representations of electrostatics. It is recommended that you read the documentation (PDF) before beginning. The manual is also available locally.

Instructions on getting Grasp up and running

At a winterm window (not xterm) prompt, type:

prepare grasp

This will set up all of your environment variables

Only run GRASP out of a wsh or xwsh window, NOT an xterm window. The latter does not respond correctly to GL textport commands. Thus, you must be in front of an SGI to use Grasp. If you are unsure what type your computer is running try typing "echo $WINTERM". If the reply is "WINTERM: Undefined variable." This means the default is being used which is xwsh and therefore OK.
