how to get started

Wed May 7 07:44:17 EST 1997


I would like to start using x-plor for determining nmr solution structures (ok, one to start with  ;-)  ). All I have is the handbook (rather confusing) and an installed version of x-plor 3.1 (whether correctly installed or not I dont know, there is no

Currently I have two major problems:

1. Is there a possibility to figure out, if the program is correctly 
   and completely installed. (I have some doubts about that, as files    
   like the "generate_inp" or "generate_template_inp" etc. are nowhere   
   to be found in the working directory - but everyone in this newsgroup 
   is talking about them (and if I understood it correctly, they are 
   using them for generating a file that contains the input parameters.
   Still there is a file called "xgenerate.inp" but neither I can open
   it directly nor could I figure out any other way.)

2. Is there any tutorial/handbook/description that gives a step-by-step  
   instruction on how to start the program, write the first simple      
   sequence, introduce restraints and define the necessary calculation 
   protocols? Lets say, some example structure and files, containing all 
   intermediate results, so that I can run a tutorial of the programm
   and see, if I come up whith the correct result?

Sorry for such a long long mail, but I'm really lost at the moment and do not know there to start. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
