Negative Series Instructions: Job Termination and Restart

The "-1" instruction terminates the job and exits via subroutine EXITNG.

The "-2" instruction reinitializes ORTEP and reads another structure from the same input file starting with a new title card. As many structures as desired may be cascaded in the input file in this manner before exiting with a "-1" instruction. The user's initial input about the destinations for the drawing and text output hold for the entire set of structures. At the end of each structure, the user is offered the opportunity to save the drawing, view it on the screen, or edit the current instruction set before proceeding to the next structure.
