Fourth Release of CCP14
The CCP14 Homepage is at http://www.ccp14.ac.uk
The Fourth Release of the CCP14 Suite for Powder and Single-Crystal
Diffraction Analysis is now available.
Obtaining the CCP14 Introductory Manual via FTP
Obtaining the software
To retrieve the CCP14 suite via the U.K. ftp site and tradition ftp methods,
please take the following steps :
- Type "ftp gserv1.dl.ac.uk" or "ftp 188.8.131.52" to reach the Daresbury
anonymous FTP server, followed by "anonymous" for userid and your own e-mail
address for password.
- Next, type "cd ccp14" to move down to the CCP14 home directory.
- Below this level, you will see a number of "operating system" directories
eg. "sgirix5.2", which contain all the executables for that particular
platform. In each operating system directory, the programs are grouped
according to crystallographic function in appropriately named
sub-directories, eg. "index" for indexing, "struc" for structure
solution, "quant" for quantitative analysis, etc.
- The documentation is contained in the directory "doc", on the same level
as the operating system directories. The documentation and example
input data files corresponding to any one program are grouped in a
sub-directory named after that program. All the ".doc" documentation
files are in ASCII format.
- Before collecting the programs, it will be best to "get" the
postscript version of the CCP14 Manual and print it out at your site.
The manual for the Fourth Release is available in the directory
"/ccp14/doc/manual" and consists of the files "manual.ps", "fig1.ps",
"table1.ps" and "table2.ps". The Microsoft Word ".doc" files for Table 1,
Table 2 and Fig. 1 can also be found in the same directory.
The manual gives full details of how to use the suite
and of how to run individual programs.
