Jmol Changelog

New in version 14.3.10_2014.11.27 Beta

November 27th, 2014
  • bug fix: SPIN BRANCH {atomno=2} {atomno=1} does not work code: scriptExt.IsoExt splits CmdExt into two parts -- (note this will require changes to build_03_tojs_stable)
  • code: simplification of SurfaceGenerator
  • bug fix: JVXL files do not record selected contour bug fix: isosurface CONTOUR -n broken (in Jmol 12)
  • bug fix: isosurface "t.jvxl" loading of contoured planes broken
  • bug fix: isosurface plane xy map property atomno broken every other time used
  • new feature: isosurface contour 0 "t.jvxl" will override contour selected in JVXL file
  • new feature: isosurface CONTOUR n i -- n contours; i-th only
  • FEATURE CHANGE: For the ISOSURFACE command, there is an undocumented syntax that the CUTOFF keyword prior to a number is optional, as in "ISOSURFACE 2.0". This was never documented and was never shown in any examples. This change is to require the CUTOFF keyword
  • new feature: isosurface LATTICE {i j k} FIXED -- creates an isosurface from periodic volumetric data with the specified number of unit cells -- "fixed" in the sense that the operation is at load time not at rendering, allowing slabbing and use of WITHIN
  • new feature: isosurface UNITCELL x.x .... -- for periodic lattices only -- adjusts grid by x.x in fractional coordinates -- caution is advised, as the grid is expanded in this process, leading to more grid points and more memory required -- negative x.x results in a selection of a subset of the data centered on the center of the unit cell

New in version 14.1.11 Beta (March 31st, 2014)

  • FEATURE CHANGE: associative array .count, .length, .lines removed:
  • specifically for associative arrays, nothing more
  • these were unnecessary equivalents of .size
  • change will not be incorporated into Jmol 14.0
  • new feature: JSpecView readers for ACD/Labs annotated MS, IR, Raman, and UV/VIS:
  • displays fragments for MS (highlights atoms)
  • highlights atoms involved in an IR/Raman stretch
  • UV/VIS and Raman untested
  • new feature: JSpecView and Jmol read ACD/Labs assigned spectra block JDX files:
  • 2D MOL files with missing hydrogens on hetero atoms.
  • fully synced
  • drag-drop enabled
  • new feature: associative array standard "dot" notation:
  • a.test = 33
  • print a.test
  • caveat: cannot do this with a.keys, a.size, or a.type
  • not implemented in Jmol 14.0 because of the feature change
  • new feature: associative array alternative ".." syntax:
  • same as JavaScript and Java, but ".." instead of "."
  • new feature: .covalentRadius added as more appropriate alias for .covalent
  • new feature: .bondingRadius added as more appropriate alias for .ionic
  • new feature: set bondingVersion:
  • 0: Jmol default, from OpenBabel 1.100.1, uses a mix of covalent and ionic radii for autobonding
  • 1: Pyykko and Atsumi, 2009, changes the distance criteria for autobonding to be specifically covalent
  • saved in state only for file loading; should be unchanged after state loading.
  • new feature: color(color1, color2, n, asHSL):
  • returns a color scheme as a string
  • colors can be of any nature -- string or point, name or rgb
  • n colors; simple interpolation from color1 to color2
  • asHSL must be TRUE or FALSE; when TRUE, uses hue/saturation/luminance instead of rgb gradient
  • new feature: added simpler associative array notation: [key:value,...]:
  • no quotes required
  • supplements {"key":value,...} where quotes are still required
  • due to conflict with atom set chain descriptors such as {a:b}.
  • new feature: catchable THROW:
  • as in Java or JavaScript, allows a way of jumping out of a process.
  • outside of try/catch gives the expected error report
  • passes a string as the variable thrown_value
  • can be trapped with try/catch
  • new feature: asynchronous resumable processes:
  • THROW CONTEXT contextName
  • throws a catchable error, but in the process of doing so, creates a script context that allows RESUMING at the point of the throw, unlike anything in JavaScript or Java (or perhaps like a debug mode).
  • if within a try/catch phrase, is handled by catch. in which case the error message is simply the context name.
  • if not within a try/catch phrase just reports - to resume, enter: &contextName
  • essentially provides a callback into the running script, so you could, for example, put a running script on hold while you load a file, check variables, etc., then continue.
  • can be resumed using RESUME CONTEXT or just & followed by the name of the context
  • replaces PAUSE/RESUME, now deprecated.
  • The current context returns to the highest level, however the variables in the context that was thrown are accessible as though the context variable was an associative array.
  • contexts can be restored using &contextName
  • new feature: SAVE CONTEXT contextName:
  • similar to THROW, but does not stop processing. So in the above example, if we change THROW to SAVE, the processing continues, but after it has completed, we can change context variables and run it again.
  • new feature: show SAVED: same as show SAVE
  • new feature: RESUME with arguments is synonymous with RESTORE

  • bug fix: anonymous context { ..... } not closed
  • bug fix: JSON of 4x4 matrix (M4) fails

  • string/string comparison should be case sensitive, but wasn't, (you can use x 99 == y 99 to force no-case comparison)
  • array/array comparison should be element by element and exact
  • assoc.array/assoc.array should be key/value by key/value and exact
  • int/decimal comparison should be simply numerical, always
  • decimal/decimal comparison should be able to be done without the < 1e-6 cutoff, you can now use [x] == [y] for exact numerical comparison
  • string/int and string/decimal comparison should also only be outside of arrays
  • all approximations for type1/type2 should be only outside the context of arrays

New in version 14.1.9 Beta (March 31st, 2014)

  • bug fix: recently released 14.0.8 introduced a math bug that caused
  • y = "test" + x.f() to be evaluated as ("test" + x).f()
  • bug fix: long-time multiple unary minus bug (at least 6 years!)
  • that print 3 +(- -3) evaluates to 0, not 6.
  • new feature: WRITE "filename" AS type:
  • allows setting type at end of WRITE command using AS

  • floats, it seems to make more sense to me to force doubles, using Float64Array instead of Float32Array.
  • Thanks given to Ira Hanson for clearing this up for me.

The surface remains in memory (in this version of Jmol) can can be used again using cache://isosurface_ where is the isosurface ID such as "isosurface1".
  • The command ISOSURFACE CACHE alone will cache the current isosurface
  • If the cache is no longer needed, then RESET CACHE will release the memory used to hold the JVXL data for the isosurface
  • The result should be essentially equivalent to the original command. (It is recommended that the original be a relatively simple command, because not all nuances of an isosurface may be stored in the JVXL data.)
  • THIS OPTION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SAVING THE STATE AS AN SPT FILE.
  • Instead, one needs to save the state in PNGJ or JMOL format, where the cached isosurface can be reloaded from a file saved in the PNGJ or JMOL zip directory
  • bug fix: load a model, then load append TRAJECTORY
  • will fail bug fix: load APPEND xxx where xxx is FILE, INLINE, SMILES, TRAJECTORY, MODEL all save incorrect LOAD command in state

  • xxxx_scene_n.min.pngj very small; does not contain anything more than # an image, JmolManifest.spt, and scene.spt
  • xxxx_scene_n.all.pngj adds all necessary files, plus script.spt

  • new feature: set MESHSCALE (default 1) also allows isosurface/mo mesh scaling:
  • was DOTSCALE in 12.3.26, but that is not appropriate
  • new feature: Mopac archive reader, including internal coord. defs:
  • use FILTER "NOCENTER" to NOT center atoms in unit cell
  • use CENTROID for complete molecules with centroids within unit cell
  • use PACKED CENTROID for complete molecules with any atoms within unit cell
  • properties stored in auxiliaryInfo
  • use getProperty auxiliaryInfo or x = getProperty("auxiliaryInfo".foo) to retrieve
  • new feature: set pathForAllFiles "..."
  • all files, local or remote, will be taken from the indicated path
  • the indicated path may be a zip file entry (ending with "|")
  • automatically reset to '' in case of an unrecoverable error in execution
  • used for creating JMOL files containing user scripts instead of a state
  • disallows all writing and image creation
  • scripts including prompts to read wildcard files (for example, "load ?") will still prompt for those and read them properly
  • new feature: write SCRIPT ["scriptFileName", "filename2","filename3",...] PNGJ|JMOL...:
  • syntax is WRITE SCRIPT followed by an array of file names then whatever else is necessary to create the PNGJ or JMOL file
  • for example: write script ["wind.spt"] test.jmol
  • Creates a single PNGJ or JMOL file that instead of containing the state contains the script and additional files listed by the user.
  • The first script is run, and it is presumed that the other files are needed for full execution of that script.
  • Allows for creating PNGJ and JMOL files that run as animations, not just final states.
  • Jmol will automatically add any files current to the state, but other files not indicated by the state (script files especially) required for the script to run need to be indicated by the user.
  • When the script is executed, pathForAllFiles is set to the zip file itself. Thus, even scripts containing references such as "script2.spt" or "=xxxx" can be run, provided the user supplies script2.spt xxxx.pdb.gz as one of the required filenames.
  • Note that if a file is saved locally using LOAD =xxxx AS t.pdb, Jmol will automatically use the local file reference to t.pdb, not the RCSB reference.
  • If the file is loaded using only LOAD =xxxx, then Jmol will reload the remote file and store it in the PNGJ/JMOL file as xxxx.pdb.gz.

  • ellipsoid SET 1; ellipsoid SET 2;
  • TLS ellipsoids are dual
  • TLS-S is SET 1; TLS-T is SET 2
  • after issuing this command, further size or color commands affect only that set
  • needs verification by Ethan Merrit
  • new feature: load xxx.pdb filter "TLS"
  • loads TLS data # new feature: atom property property_tlsGroup
  • new feature: MolecularPlayground now accepts messages to the banner: message banner: xxxxxxx
  • new feature: MolecularPlayground fully functional.
  • This application (MPJmolApp) is part of a three-part suite
  • that runs on a Mac mini involving:
  • "Hub" [name] for overall control (Mac app; not open source yet) MPKinectDriver for obtaining motion events (Mac app; not open source yet) MPJmolApp for displaying the results (source here)
  • The Hub and MPJmolApp communicate over local port 31416, sending
  • JSON messages back and forth. (See note in org.jmol.app.jsonkiosk.JsonNioService.java)
  • For demonstrations of the installation at St. Olaf College,
  • see the following YouTube videos:
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQRkuku8ry0
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCRrRZe1j6g
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTTIVWGtFD0
  • For details relating to the original Molecular Playground
  • installation at U. Mass.-Amherst, see
  • http://molecularPlayground.org
  • Note that all of the functionality of the original MP are
  • present in MPJmolApp
  • new feature: MolecularPLayground can now ignore all Hub requests for
  • commands and content changes, thus allowing its own configuration
  • script to drive the presentation instead of the Hub's. So the Hub
  • can be used simply as an interface to the Kinect driver. This just allows a simpler development interface
  • a simple three-column Excel file can
  • be used to drive a presentation. (see org.jmol.molecularplayground.biophysics.xlsx)
  • MPJmolApp looks for the file MpJmolAppConfig.spt
  • This file can override MPJmolApp's default parameters: # NIOContentPath # default: System.getProperty("user.dir").replace('\\', '/') # + "/Content-Cache/%ID%/%ID%.json"
  • ignored if NIOcontentDisabled ends up true (see below) NIOterminatorMessage
  • default: "MP_DONE" # NIObannerEnabled
  • default: true # NIOcontentScript
  • default: (not present, setting NIOcontentDisabled=false)
  • NIOcontentDisabled
  • default: true if NIOcontentScript is present; false if not
  • NIOmotionDisabled
  • default: false
  • The script in MpJmolAppConfig.spt is run, along with whatever
  • default settings are generated by the above checks.
  • Parameters are set by querying the Viewer for those Jmol variables.
  • If NIOcontentDisabled is true, then all JSON messages from the Hub
  • of types "content", "command", and "banner" are ignored. It is still important that the running script send "MP_DONE" messages periodically (within every 6 minutes) so that the Hub knows that MPJmolApp is still
  • alive and does not try to restart it. If NIOmotionDisabled is true, then all JSON messages from the Hub # of types "move", "sync", and "touch" are ignored.
  • These are checked every time a JSON command is received, so the running script can specifically turn off motion detection if that or content detection if that is desired.
  • Note that MPJmolApp has a full console and menu that are available
  • on the operator's screen, (which is just mirrored to the projector).
  • This allows for parameter setting and adjustments on the fly.
  • new feature: show NMR
  • predicted NMR spectrum
  • uses http://www.nmrdb.org/predictor?smiles=xxxx
  • requires NCI SMILES due to bug at nmrdb not allowing "."
  • bug fix: CRYSTAL reader not properly setting model properties
  • bug fix: userFunction(x,@y) should operate as per all math
  • parens - value of variable pointed to by y
  • x = myfunc(x, @y) same action as just myfunc(x, @y)
  • bug fix: userFunction x @y
  • no parens - should operate as value of x and value of y
  • @ is unnecessary but allowed
  • bug fix: set echo "myecho" [10 10%] not working
  • bug fix: apiPlatform not correctly accessed in JpegEncoder
  • bug fix: reading of JVXL files for color density fails to color properly
  • bug fix: .... vdw 100.0% --- should be OK with float there, even if it rounds. code: refactored for Molecular Playground and Jmol Android
  • several System.out. messages present.
  • code: refactoring adapter XML readers

  • bug fix: MO overlaying orbitals
  • bug fix: PDB reader not reading Rasmol-style files with multiple bonding
  • CONECT 1 2 2 means for Rasmol double bond between atoms 1 and 2
  • 224 new features
  • summary of feature changes between Jmol 12.0 and 12.2:
  • FEATURE CHANGE: "ligand" definition changed to!(protein,nucleic,water,UREA)"
  • instead of "hetero and not solvent"
  • FEATURE CHANGE: default zShadePower set to 3
  • FEATURE CHANGE: undocumented a[13] = 3 (where a is a matrix, for a[1][3]) removed
  • FEATURE CHANGE: DSSP default for "calculate structure"-- old way is now "calculate structure RAMACHANDRAN"
  • FEATURE CHANGE: DSSP default for LOAD of PDB file with no header.
  • in previous versions, Jmol used a ramachandran-angle-based calculation for secondary structure determination when a PDB file had no HELIX or SHEET records.It just seems reasonable to use the industry-standard DSSP method instead.
  • new feature: JmolSmilesApplet method (smiles1)
  • new feature: JmolSmilesApplet method getRelationship(smiles1, smiles2)
  • new feature: The Jmol application can now communicate via socketswith other Jmol applications or specialized servers.
  • The SYNC command has been expanded to make this very easy: sync -nnnn starts a server on local port nnnn accepting only local connectionssync nnnn "background white" (from another app, generally) would execute thatcommand on the app acting as a server You can also do this from one app frame to another, because they are independentinstances of Jmol.
  • Jmol can provide server service to other apps using: sync -3000[start other app, connecting on 3000]sync 3000 ..... Because once the server is started and another app has connected,Jmol will send messages to that other app, not itself. To test the service within one application, just create the server and sendcommands to itself using a negative port number: sync -3000;sync -3000 'Mouse: rotateZBy 30'
  • Note that in this context the "server" is the one getting commands from the "client"But the server can also send commands to the client provided the client has given theappropriate handshake: {"magic":"JmolApp","event":"out"} Sent from Jmol (via outSocket): {"magic" : "JmolApp", "role" : "out"} (socket initialization for messages TO jmol){"magic" : "JmolApp", "role" : "in"} (socket initialization for messages FROM jmol){"type" : "script", "event" : "done"} (script completed) Sent to Jmol (via inSocket): {"type" : "banner", "visibility" : "ON" or "OFF" } (set banner for kiosk){"type" : "banner", "text" : bannerText } (set banner for kiosk){"type" : "command", "command" : command } (script command request){"type" : "content", "id" : id } (load content request){"type" : "move", "style" : (see below) } (mouse command request){"type" : "quit" } (shut down request){"type" : "sync", "sync" : (see below) } (sync command request){"type" : "touch", (a raw touch event)"eventType" : eventType,"touchID" : touchID,"iData" : idata,"time" : time,"x" : x, "y" : y, "z" : z } For details on the "touch" type, see org.jmol.viewer.ActionManagerMT::processEventContent is assumed to be in a location determined by the Jmol variablenioContentPath, with %ID% being replaced by some sort of ID number of tag provided bythe other half of the system. That file contains more JSON code: {"startup_script" : scriptFileName, "banner_text" : text }
  • An additional option "banner" : "off" turns off the title banner.The startup script must be in the same directory as the .json file, typically as a .spt file
  • Move/sync commands include: {"type" : "move", "style" : "rotate", "x" : deltaX, "y", deltaY }{"type" : "move", "style" : "translate", "x" : deltaX, "y", deltaY }{"type" : "move", "style" : "zoom", "scale" : scale } (1.0 = 100%){"type" : "sync", "sync" : syncText }
  • Note that all these moves utilize the Jmol sync functionality originally intended forapplets. So any valid sync command may be used with the "sync" style. These includeessentially all the actions that a user can make with a mouse, including thefollowing, where the notation represents a number of a given type. Theseevents interrupt any currently running script, just as with typical mouse actions. "centerAt "-- set {ptx,pty,ptz} at screen (x,y)"rotateMolecule ""rotateXYBy ""rotateZBy ""rotateZBy " (with center reset)"rotateArcBall ""spinXYBy "-- a "flick" gesture"translateXYBy ""zoomBy ""zoomByFactor ""zoomByFactor " (with center reset)
  • new feature: preliminary QuantumEspresso XML readernew feature: Jmol Application flags -k and -P-- -k kiosk mode: like applet, but with a banner across the top-- -P JSON NIO client mode over port -- for JSON NIO, use -J or -j to set nioContentPath and nioTerminatorMessageto the desired values. For example:Jmol -k -P 31461 -j "nioContentPath='./%ID%/%ID%.json';nioTerminatorMessage='SCRIPT_DONE'"
  • new feature: Jmol.js adds jmolSwitchToSignedApplet().This needed a new tag that is now inserted around the applet.
  • new feature: filter "_Xx" for filtering element Xxbug fix: MO SLAB n never implemented
  • bug fix: MOLDEN reader not reading spherical basis functions
  • bug fix: contact command not symmetricSet A should generally be the ligand. However, consider note:// check for O--H...N or O...H--N and not considering// hydrogens and still have a filter// a bit of asymmetry here: set A may or may not have H atoms added.// This is particularly important for aminesThe issue here is that we do not assume that hydrogens have beenadded to ligands. So we make some allowances there.

  • bug fix: mo points 1000 brokenbug fix: xxx = {*}; xxx.property_x = 3 improperly parsed as a script commandbug fix: getproperty minimizationInfo returns JSON instead of readable string
  • bug fix: JaguarReader not reading D6 MOs properly code: all references to java.awt and javax.swing isolated toorg.jmol.awt, rg.jmol.export, and org.jmol.multitouchcode: refactored Jmol core Swing classes restricted toapplet, console, export, modelkit, multitouch, popupTODO: Question about what c=c should do. For now, changing that to NOT match C=C of benzene

  • broke Jmol reading of the Epcot hemoglobin file. Only relevant to sequential or trajectory PDB files that do not have MODEL statements.
  • So then any version starting with 12.0.RC_24 (7/8/2010) through now (7/2/2011) will read the files
  • correctly -- not missing the first atom -- but that messes up earlier scripts. Unfortunately the Epcot business
  • (Touch-A-Molecule) was written using 12.9.23 (1/24/2010), so that is affected.
  • This fix only affects states written prior to 12.0.RC_1 and just makes it so that they display correctly (though missing that one atom)

  • Implemented here is a flexible way of mapping atomic potential data onto
  • a surface. Given a set of atoms, we assign numbers to the atoms from:
  • a) a resource in this package and based on atom names, or
  • b) a table of data read from a file and based on atom names, or
  • c) an array of properties assigned to the atoms.
  • In addition, once those potentials are assigned, we can apply a variety
  • of functions of distance:
  • (0) Coulomb's law distance function (same as rasmol potential distance function)
  • (1) f * e^(-d/2)
  • Gaillard, P., Carrupt, P.A., Testa, B. and Boudon, A., J.Comput.Aided Mol.Des. 8, 83-96 (1994)

  • b) the default function is Coulomb for MEP and Fauchere for MLP

  • x = {1.1}.find("SMILES") // get the SMILES string for the model 1.1
  • x = {1.1}.find("SMILES", true) // get the bioSMILES string for the model 1.1
  • use select search(...) to do SMARTS substructure searching
  • use the find function to assign variables.

New in version 12.0 RC10 (May 7th, 2010)

  • bug fix: isosurface sigma x.x not properly implemented
  • "sigma 3.0" means "3.0 times the cutoff associated with sigma = 1.0"
  • this to be consistent with the Aztex viewer sliders that set the value of
  • 1.0 to be "1.0 sigma" and then scale based on that.
  • new feature: "3D-SMARTS" -- smarts("a") assigns aromatic based on 3D geometry --
  • flat ring of 3-7 atoms with all substituents directly in plane
  • true, not the official designation, but far more practical than checking bonds
  • will pick out rings in HIS, TYR, TRP, nucleic acid bases, etc.
  • new feature: full set of allenic, tetrahedral, square planar, trigonal pyramidal,
  • and octahedral smiles/smarts/substructure stereochemistry
  • tested against all structures described at
  • http://www.daylight.com/dayhtml/doc/theory/theory.smiles.html#RTFToC24
  • new feature: smiles/smarts/substructure adds allene stereochemistry:
  • select smarts("C(Cl)(C)=[C@@]=C(F)[H]")
  • new feature: smiles/smarts/substructure adds double bond stereochemistry:
  • select smarts("C(O)/C=C/([CH2])C")
  • new feature: "smarts" does not include attached hydrogens in match
  • new feature: smiles/smarts/substructure with tetrahedral chirality
  • select smarts("C[C@@]([C]=O)([CH])[CH2]")
  • code: Smiles refactoring and efficiencies
  • note: I realize that smarts and smiles is a can of worms, particularly in
  • relation to aromaticity. Ignoring that for now.
  • new feature: {atomSet}.find(["SMARTS",]"smartsString"[,isAll])
  • new feature: {atomSet}.find("SMILES","smilesString"[,isAll])
  • new feature: "smilesString".find("SMARTS","smartsString" [, isAll])
  • new feature: select smarts("smartsString")
  • smarts does not do implied H atoms, making it much easier to
  • use for pattern matching, which it was made for.
  • new feature: select smiles("smilesString") alias for substructure(..)
  • more specific and relevant -- SMILES strings are supposed to
  • be for full molecules, not substructure searching
  • new feature: JME data saved in variable "jmeString" for later generation of 2D data

  • CHANGED FEATURE: set loadDefaultOrientation retired (Sygress/CAChe and Spartan files only) in favor of FILTER "noOrient"
  • note that this will change the default orientation for these files to be the one last
  • saved in the actual .spartan or .csf file.
  • bug fix: undocumented obscure reference to nonstandard Hall symbols disregarded in readers

  • LCFILE is file.toLowerCase(); LC13 is file.substring(1,3).toLowerCase()
  • bug fix: state should not be saving loadFormat, edsLoadFormat, or edsLoadCutoff
  • bug fix: isosurface LATTICE option not generating copies for export
  • code: all exporters may write files directly (was just POVRAY)

New in version 12.0 RC9 (April 30th, 2010)

  • bug fix: mo parameters not restored properly from state
  • application: File menu "Output Console" changed to just "Console"
  • code: support for Java 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.4 dropped (MouseManagers and JmolPopup, Graphics3D)
  • bug fix: parallel:
  • ScriptEvaluator: Given function object holds state, it can not be
  • called from two threads at the same time. So, runFunction is wrapped in synchronized(function).
  • ParallelProcessor: Is modified to use lock object vs this as this is used in ScriptEvaluator.
  • Viewer: Change to Executor factory to use different thread executor,
  • thus avoiding deadlock if parallel functions call parallel functions and
  • allows parallel processes to be eligible to run.

  • bug fix: It is possible for PDB files (1tmv) to include non-crystallographic
  • symmetry operations. These operations do not fit the standard model of
  • Jones-Faithful operator syntax. (The symmetry in this case is a spiral)
  • In that case, the list of symmetry operations may be truncated, and though
  • all the atoms are in the correct positions, "select symop=49" might not work.
  • bug fix: PDB biomolecule reading misses a set if the first is not "x,y,z"
  • code: Java 1.5 required. (this has been the actual case for some time)
  • code: UFF Calcution tweak: // added b.type "C_2+" for cations 12.0.RC9

  • new feature: load VIBRATION "filename" n .......
  • --all features of the load command, but only loads the vibrational information
  • --applies {within(loadAtomDataTolerance,xyzcoord)}.vxyz = vibcoord, so to all unit cells
  • --optional n is just as for any load -- optional nth model

  • {atomno=a}.fxyz = {atomno=a}.uxyz
