shelxle(1) graphical user interface for SHELXL


shelxle [options] [file]


ShelXle combines an editor with syntax highlighting for the SHELXL-associated .ins (input) and .res (output) files with an interactive graphical display for visualization of a three-dimensional structure including the electron density (Fo) and difference density (Fo-Fc) maps.


There are currently only a few options supported, which are mainly targeted to debugging. It further supports the traditional QT (X11) options, see qtoptions(7). The program further optionally accepts a path to a .res or .ins file.
