CHART was initially conceived to be a interventionless attempt at structure solution MAD/SAD/MIR/SIRAS data to initial atomic model.
It was designed therefore to work at the back end of Mosflm: (i.e. Auto-Mosflm would process the (typically) MAD data: write a simple parameter file (describing the derivative, number of residues, file locations etc.) and then spawns a process to run CHART).
I am adding an Acorn interface. This is the major issue to be resolved before the next release. Currently, I am sorting out the calculation of E's from the Anomalous (I amuse myself with the idea of using Clipper to do this).
Binaries for WindowsXX, SGI, ``Linux'' exist and are distributable. The spanner in the works is (64 bit) Alphas. However, I am working on a solution to that using guile (which truth to tell, is not completely working yet).
...on its way - I hope that it's in the next CHART release.
I am not currently a Python user (I intend to be a routine Python programmer). I am not opposed to re-writing CHART in Python and don't want to make a decision about it now - I will come back to it.
I estimate 4-6 months to convert - maybe this is a conservative.
Also, CHART re-written in Python will have an attractively amusing name.
