The EFLECH and INDEX beta versions are intended to be used for getting familiar
with the software. They have no limitations. You should not use this beta
code after Jun 2006. Index at level 3.5.9 has successfully passed a set of
17 test examples consisting of
In all cases, the default values for
- 3 cubic examples: fluorite, magnetite, Y2O3
- 2 tetragonal examples: cassiterite, zircon
- 3 hexagonal examples: corundum, quartz, zincite
- 2 orthorhombic examples: anhydrite, PbSO4
- 3 monoclinic examples: epidote, gypsum, muscovite
- 4 triclinic examples: K2Cr2O7, kyanite,
ignore= were in usage.
- Use the program at your own risk.
- Educational use of the program is encouraged.
- Commercial use is strictly forbidden.
- Using the beta program is not allowed after Jun 2006.

Download the appropriate program files and the
data files ('bgmndata.zip'). Create a directory 'rietveld' in the root of a
volume (e.g. c:). Then unzip the program files and the data files into this
directory. Append this directory to the path. Set the environment variable
EFLECH to the program directory:
Now you are ready to run EFLECH/INDEX.
It is recommended to create separate subdirectories for each analytical task
c:\rietveld\k2cr2o7) and to run all programs from these
subdirectories. These subdirs should contain the control file
*.sav), the measuring data file
and the instrumental function file
Actual Release is 3.5.9
- Programs for Windows:
relatedwin32.zip (339237 bytes)
- Programs for OS/2 (which is the developer's system):
relatedos2.zip (292821 bytes)
- Programs for Linux (compiled on RedHat 8.0 as distributed):
- Additional, you need the BGMN demo packet to
be installed. Especially:
- GEOMET/MAKEGEQ for generation of peak model parameters
- OUTPUT for generating a peak list
- SHOW (PLOT1) for EFLECH result output
- Of course, you must download the BGMN data
- Example K2Cr2O7:
The Linux example includes the binary
*.geq file for Intel
processors. It may not be used on other UNIX systems.
