massxpert(1) massXpert mass spectrometry software package (binary


massxpert [ < -h | --help > < -c | --config > < -v | --version > ]


This manual page documents briefly the massxpert-bin package that brings a mass spectrometric software suite for linear (bio-)polymers. This package contains an executable program (massxpert) that provides four graphical modules that are used to: 1) define polymer chemistries (XpertDef); 2) make use of the definitions in the massxpert's calculator module (XpertCalc) and 3) in its polymer sequence editor/chemistry/mass spectrometry simulator (XpertEdit); 4) compare lists of (m/z,z) pairs so as to mine the data (XpertMiner).

-c, --config
Print the configuration of the software when it was compiled (locations of the different data...);
-v, --version
Print the version of the software along the with version of the Qt libraries used upon building of the software.
