gchempaint - 2D chemical structures editor for the GNOME2 desktop


gchempaint [ OPTIONS...] [FILE...]


gchempaint is a 2D chemical structures editor for the GNOME2 desktop. It is a multi document application. You can read different file types with gchempaint. E.g. chemical/x-cml, chemical/x-mdl-molfile, chemical/x-mdl-sdfile or chemical/x-pdb. But be aware, that you will maybe loose 3D-data from these file-formats.


Currently the following options are supported:
-e, --edit-residue
Open residues dialog.
-F, --full-screen
Open new windows full screen.
-M, --maximize
Open new window maximized.
-?, --help
Show application help options.
--help-all, --help-*
Print all or just a group of help options. These options are not documented here. Instead see gtk-options(7) and gnome-options(7).
-v, --version
Print gchempaint version information.
