International Tables for Crystallography: Definition and by Hall S. R., McMahon B.

By Hall S. R., McMahon B.

This quantity within the overseas Tables sequence, Definition and alternate of crystallographic info, bargains with the appropriate definition of knowledge goods utilized in crystallography. It makes a speciality of a specific information illustration, the Crystallographic details dossier (CIF), constructed over the past 15 years for the automated interchange of knowledge very important to structural crystallography, and for submissions to crystallographic guides and databases. the necessity for the amount stems from the IUCr's adoption in 1990of CIF because the ordinary for changing crystallographic information around the complete neighborhood, and for the submission of analysis articles to Acta Crystallographica and different journals. the information goods defined during this quantity seem as usual tags in CIF. each one facts merchandise has an linked definition, with attributes that signify its allowed values and relationships with different defined goods. The definitions offer a complete machinereadable description of the knowledge linked to a structural examine, from area-detector counts via to the derived molecular geometry, and make allowance a whole annotation appropriate for e-book as a major learn article.

Example text

The table of values is assembled in row-major order; that is, the first occurrence of each of the data items is assembled in sequence, then the second occurrence of each item, and so forth. In a CIF, looped lists may not be nested. 3. The syntax of a CIF The essential syntax rules for a CIF data file are discussed alongside an example (Fig. 1), which is an extract from a file used to exemplify the reporting of a small-molecule crystal structure to Acta Crystallographica Section C. The following discussion is tutorial in nature and is intended to give an overview of the syntactic features of CIF to the general reader.

To allow for the occurrence of a semicolon as the initial character of an unquoted character string, provided it is not the first character in a line of text, the special symbol is used below to indicate any character that is not interpretable as a line terminator. The cases of context sensitivity involving the beginning of text fields and the ends of quoted strings are discussed below, but they are most commonly resolved in a lexical scan. (36) Productions can be used to produce documents, or equivalently to check a document to see if it is valid in this grammar.

Such systems, where records of fixed length are maintained, may also give rise to ambiguities in the interpretation of padding to the record boundary following a last printable character – is such padding to be discarded or treated as white space? 4(17)]. The second complication arises because current popular OSs support several different character-based line terminators. Historically, applications developed under a specific OS have made general use of system libraries to handle text files, so that the conventions built into the system libraries have in effect become standard representations of line terminators for all applications built on that OS.
