How to obtain ANSIG

Command reference

Caveat: This documentation is not perfect. Some parts are not finished, some are not very well written. If you find any specific problems, please email them to Per Kraulis so that the problems can be fixed in the next release.


A paper describing the 3D/4D version of the ANSIG program as such is planned, but has not yet been written. The JMR paper is the original ANSIG paper, while the Biochemistry paper uses the 3D/4D version and describes some features of ANSIG in the methods part.
