Slide 7 of 27
To run Mosflm, you need to have the program in your path and you need to know what it’s called on your system - often it’s “ipmosflm”.
If you run Mosflm and encounter difficulties and need help, make sure that you report which version of the program you are running - this is the first line of output to the screen, and also the first line in the standard log file, usually called mosflm.lp.
In this example, using a Mar image plate, the detector type is automatically detected so no DETECTOR keyword is necessary. For other detector types (e.g. ADSC, Rigaku, DIP, Mar CCD), default values are set up by using this keyword in conjunction with the detector type.
The GO keyword in conjunction with IMAGE tells the program to use the X-windows GUI for further processing.
The header information is read; in this case the crystal to detector distance, the wavelength, the pixel size of the detector, and the oscillation range of this image.
