Rafin - RafNB - RafD19 - RafDB

Programs for the refinement of the:
- [UB] matrix
- wavelength
- cell parameters
- instrument zero shifts
in a single crystal diffraction experiment


This program suite is still in use on many ILL's instruments and in many other neutron or synchrotron facilities.

While I am no longer in this business, people still often ask me for manuals of the programs and even for the original FORTRAN code (PDP11 and VAX). Thus I retrieved the files from old magnetic tapes and converted them from the outdated WriteNow format to PDF. Yes I still have a Mac OS 9 computer able to run WriteNow!
Just for the fun, I started to convert the code from Fortran 77 to Fortran 90. I give here both the old code, the new one and applications compiled for Mac OS X (universal binary).
