Scripts of the NMRPipe System

This particular reference page lists the application scripts of the NMRPipe system. These are generally either UNIX C-shell scripts (with the .com extension), or NMRWish TCL scripts (with the .tcl extension). For example, the script autoFit.tcl is used to perform general-purpose multidimensional lineshape fitting.

In many cases, scripts are invoked directly at the UNIX command line. Some scripts are used frequently. Some, however, may rarely be used, were added only for development purposes, or may be superseded by other facilities. In an attempt to indicate which scripts are used most frequently, this reference list includes an instance count. In the current version of this reference list, the instance count is a rough estimate of how often NMRPipe's developer Frank Delaglio has used a particular script in recorded examples of both routine use and research and development of the software. Note that this underestimates the use of scripts which are more often used interactively.
