NAME
     obspectrophore — SPECTROPHORE calculator

SYNOPSIS
     obspectrophore [options] -i input_file

     obspectrophore [-u | -h]

DESCRIPTION
     obspectrophore can be used to generate Spectrophores, which are one-
     dimensional descriptors generated from the property fields surrounding
     the molecules.  This technology allows the accurate description of
     molecules in terms of their surface properties or fields. Comparison of
     molecules property fields provides a robust structure-independent method
     of aligning actives from different chemical classes. When applied to
     molecules such as ligands and drugs, Spectrophores can be used as
     powerful molecular descriptors in the fields of chemoinformatics, virtual
     screening, and QSAR modeling.

OPTIONS
     -i file
           Specifies the molecular input file from which Spectrophores are to
           be calculated. The filetype is automatically detected from the file
           extension.

     -n value
           Specifies the kind of normalization that should be performed. Valid
           values are (without quotes): No (default), ZeroMean, UnitStd and
           ZeroMeanAndUnitStd.

     -a value
           Specifies the required accuracy expressed as the angular stepsize.
           Only the following discrete values are allowed: 1 | 2 | 5 | 10 | 15
           | 20 (default) | 30 | 36 | 45 | 60

     -s value
           Specifies the kind of cages that should be used in terms of the
           underlying pointgroup: P1 or P-1. Valid values are (without
           quotes): No (default), Unique, Mirror and All.

     -r value
           Specifies the required resolution expressed as a real positive
           number. The default value is 3.0 Angstrom. Negative values or a
           value equal to 0 generate an error message.

     -u    Display implementation details.

     -h    Display help message.
