Abstract

We have ported UNICS III (Universal Crystallographic Computation Program System III), which has been used by many researchers on the main frame computer systems for more than ten years, to the personal computer and the engineering workstation. We selected the 32-bits MS-DOS computer as to the personal computer and the UNIX computer as to the workstation. On MS-DOS we have gotten the execution speed a little faster than that of the main frame system FACOM of fifteen years ago, while on UNIX we have obtained the speed several times as above and the environment that resembles JCL on the main frame systems. We have also ported the programs which display and print the crystal structure with ease. One can embed and edit the obtained figures of the crystal structures of any size in a computer document.
