Jmol, an free open-source Java molecule viewer for chemical structures in 3D with features for chemicals, crystals, materials and biomolecules.
A list of features:
Download Jmol-14.27.2-binary.zip. Create a folder (directory) "jmol". Open the zip file en go in the subdirectory "jmol-14.27.2". Copy the files in this directory to the new folder "jmol". That's it. Delete the files jmol, jmol.bat, jmol.mac and jmol.sh. I didn't experiment with jsmol.zip (very big file), another candidate for the dustbin.
The jmol.cmd file
This version of Jmol works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. Some menuparts are not working anymore, like the download of samples. The developer told me that in future Jmol needs a higher version of Java. So piece by piece things are not working anymore in our version of Java. I have made a jmol.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off SET CLASSPATH= set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive:java]\JAVA160160ga5\bin set path=[drive:java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive:jmol] cd [drive:jmol]\jmol java -Duser.home=[drive:jmol]\Jmol -Duser.language=nl -Xmx512m -jar jmol.jar 2>jmol-14-27-2-bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Jmol with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "jmol.cmd" from the distribution. This file is copied to the "jmol" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. There are more options to include, go to Starting_Jmol_Application.
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jmol]\jmol\jmol.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Jmol". You find enclosed in the file a suitable OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 Jmol icon: jmol-ecs.zip.
