Re: Molfile formats and Gopher attributes



 In response to Henry Rzepa's query on molfile formats and Gopher attributes, I
 would like to put in a plug for SMILES representation as well as MDL molfiles.
 SMILES is becoming a standard and having a simple text string for a structure
 (given that 2-D and 3-D structures can be rapidly generated now using CONCORD
 and other programs) can be very usefulin many situations.
 Cheers,
 Dave
