PIG links to RasMol and other external software

Molecular information is exported to RasMol using either PDB or XYZ files generated by PIG. The XYZ file has the advantage that it contains the full atom contents on the PIG screen. It is also a the perfect way to have RasMol discover crystallographic symmetry!

These PIG generated file are also a great way to interface to other chemistry programs that don't yet read CIF's.
