single bond, double bond, stereospecific bond, charges, resonance arrows, lone
It can export both PostScript and PNG formats.
Currently portability is not my goal so only GNU/Linux platform is supported.
However any effort in this direction is appreciated so feel free to ask me
about any porting question. Please remember that bist is actually in a beta
stage of development so i strongly suggest you to not using it except for
testing or hacking purpose. Bist is free software released under GNU GPL
