king(1) interactive system for three-dimensional vector graphics


king [options] [input file(s)]


KiNG (Kinemage, Next Generation) is an interactive system for three-dimensional vector graphics. It supports a set of graphics primitives that make it suitable for many types of graphs, plots, and other illustrations; although its first use was to display macromolecular structures for biophysical research. KiNG builds on Mage, JavaMage, and the "kinemage" (kinetic image) concept to deliver a full-featured Java application with a user-friendly interface and integrated editing features. The KiNG jar file can be used within a web page as a Java applet or Java object to promote easy access to kinemages or coordinate files from a web browser.


Print version information.
Merge all input files into one kinemage.
Keep all input kin or structure files into separate kinemages.
Use Phenix colors for electron density files entered on command line.


KiNG accepts kinemage, PDB, mmCIF, or electron density files as input.
