21.09.03. The CML1 and CML2 processors in openBabel have been updated to correct
various bugs in the CML parsing. OpenBabel 1-100-1 now
incorporates these changes which we have compiled into
binaries (executables) for Openbabel as follows
Openbabel is invoked only from the command
line (there is no GUI version). A copy of the cml.cpp
module is available here if
you wish to compile your own version of openbabel. Please
download the versions as of 21.09.03 rather than earlier
- MacOS X (10.2 and
- SGI (Irix 6.5)
- Linux (Redhat 8)
- Windows (install both
babel.exe and cygwin1.dll in same directory).
- Examples of CML1 and CML2 are available here, along
with the Molfiles they were generated from.
- 14.07.03. The CMLCore schema is updated to version 2.1.1
correcting various validation bugs.
