The O-Manual


A program for crystallographic model building and display.


Current Version of O

May 12, 2006 - Current Version 10.0.3

O for SGI

For best results, remove all O references from your .cshrc file. Then, whenever you want to run O, enter 'prepare o' at the prompt, then 'ono', and you're going.

O for Mac OSX

This works amazingly well. Probably better than the SGI version. Go to http://xray.bmc.uu.se/~alwyn/Distribution/distrib_frameset.html to get the latest version for your Mac.


The Access file on SGI's

As always, the access file /public/apps/o.9.0.7/access.o contains license data for all available machines. If you run O on a workstation that is not licensed, you will not be able to save any of your work!  Moreover, if you are using an old <binary>.o file that was saved with an old version of access.o, you will not be able to work on new workstations until you do the following: Run ono7 <binaryfile>.o on one of the old workstations. Type read /public/apps/o.9.0.7/data/access.o Type save


O as a helper application for SHARP

You will need to copy the file ~sharp/opac_handler to your home directory.
