Calculating Bonds not in the .pdb File [ID:771] (19/35)

in series: Developing emol!

video tutorial by Erik Thompson, added 06/08

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

Often the bond information isn't included in a .pdb file. In this episode I go over the code to calculate those bonds. Also I go over a bugfix to the DrawBond() method from the last episode for when the angle of rotation is 0 or 180 degrees.

The code for this episode is the 11th revision uploaded to launchpad which can be downloaded easily using bazaar or from the launchpad website: http://code.launchpad.net/~mrlobster99/emol/devel

Great work. Just wanted to play around with pdb files. Was exactly what i was looking for. Keep going!

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Erik
