18.6.8. HTML interface

| top | pdf |

The HTML graphical interface uses HTML to create a high-level menu-driven environment for CNS (Fig.[link]). Compact and relatively simple Common Gateway Interface (CGI) conversion scripts are available that transform a task file into a form page and the edited form page back into a task file (Fig.[link]). These conversion scripts are written in PERL.

Example of a CNS HTML form page. This particular example corresponds to the task file in Fig.[link].

Use of the CNS HTML form page interface, emphasizing the correspondence between input fields in the form page and parameters in the task file.

A comprehensive collection of task files are available for crystallographic phasing and refinement (Fig.[link]. New task files can be created or existing ones modified in order to address problems that are not currently met by the distributed collection of task files. The HTML graphical interface thus provides a common interface for distributed and `personal' CNS task files (Fig.[link]).
