This homepage is made to give you a first glance at the educational DOS-software, which is available on our public ftp site. (ftp.nirim.go.jp /pub/education/dos/..)


Present Project: XR95

At the moment I am working on a software package named XR95. XR stands for X-ray, since the program's main purpose is to simulate diffraction patterns for various X-ray techniques applied in crystallography.

This program is a pure DOS-program but it provides an easy-to-use interface with pop-ups, pull-down menus and so on. Graphics is interactive and with animation. With the Vector Space Viewer (VSV), for example, you can even animate 3D-diffraction patterns using red-blue glasses. All subprograms that produce graphics also create the corresponding PostScript output files.

Release Notes

I hope to release the first freeware testversion in early september, however, I cannot guarantee that. In any case you can look up this homepage in order to know,whether you can already download it or not.
