Summary: PLATON is a versatile SHELX97 compatible multipurpose crystallographic tool

PLATON is a versatile SHELX-97 compatible multipurpose
crystallographic tool.

Most PLATON features complement those available in the excellent
and widely distributed SHELX-97 package for crystal structure
determination and refinement.

Historically (1980) PLATON started out as a program for the
automated calculation of derived geometrical data (i.e. bond
distances, bond angles and torsion angles, including su's
(esd's)) for structures refined with SHELX76. Since then,
that basic function evolved into an automatic function to
calculate everything of possible interest (both intra- and
intermolecular)for a given structural parameter set
(Instruction: CALC).

Over time, various other tools were introduced (Molecular
Graphics i.e. PLUTON & ORTEP, Absorption correction, Data
Validation etc.), some of which requiring a reflection datafile
as well.

Several functions in PLATON (e.g. SPGR and EXOR) are there to
implement calculations needed for datareduction, structure
determination and refinement with a program system called
