NEW! FullProfApp

FullProfAPP is a new tool for automated Rietveld analysis of powder diffraction patterns using FullProf
as refinement engine. This tool is designed to easily handle large chunks of diffraction data generated 
by high-throughput screening (HTS) experiments as well as by in situ and operando studies at large user 
facilities such as Synchrotron and Neutron sources. This application assumes that the whole FullProf Suite
is installed in the computer.
A manual for using the interface can be found in the link:


Download the package, which is an executable file (installer), in a temporary directory and run it.
Follow the indications of the installer and pay attention not to use, for holding the files, directories
with blanks or non ASCII character in their names


The ZIP file should be expanded directly in the place 
the user wants to put the programs (eg. $HOME/FullProf_MacOS, /Applications/FullProf_MacOS,...).
If "/Applications/FullProf_MacOS" is selected, please move the subdirectory "Examples" to
a different place.  
Open a terminal to go to the $HOME/FullProf_MacOS directory and run the program "env_fullprof".
This program modifies the hidden file .bashrc (or .bashrc_profile, .profile, .zshrc, .zprofile) 
of the current user by adding the environment variable FULLPROF and modifying the path. 

In case the system rejects the execution of a program, use the FINDER to localize it and, with the 
CRTL key pressed, click on its icon and select the Open item from the popup menu, this opens a dialog 
box telling you that the application cannot be verified, select Open option and the program will run. 
You need to do that only one time per executable program.
Unfortunately, this has to be done one by one for all the programs of the FullProf Suite.

============================================= is the full implementation of the FULLPROF suite (64 bits). It is signed with the 
“Institut Laue-Langevin” certificate.
OpenMotif is embedded and there is no need for defining any environment variable.
Just double-click the icon of the application to launch it.

- macOS High Sierra (10.13) or higher
- a free X11 server must be present on your computer, either 
(v2.7.9 or higher) or

Download the file "FullProf4Mac-vxxx.dmg" to the Desktop. Click on it and drag the FullProf4Mac icon to the icon 
"Applications". That's all !

Known bugs
- XQuartz (at least up to 2.7.11): if XCode is not installed on the computer, XQuartz will reluctantly ask for 
 "XCcode developer tools".
  There is no harm in installing those tools to get rid of this error message.
- XQuartz (at least up to 2.7.11): XQuartz still uses old macOS APIs which makes X11 based dialogues quite slow. 
  Versions 2.8.1 and higher support both Intel and M1 chips and thus the problem may have disappeared.


Download the file of the version you wish to install in your system from the WEB page of the FullProf Suite.
The steps to follow are the following:

General Mode (for all the users of the system)
1.- Activate the super-user mode
2.- Create a directory in which you want to hold the programs of the FullProf_Suite.
    For instance:  /usr/local/bin/FullProf_Suite in some Linux systems
3.- Copy the file FullProf_Suite_XXXXNNNN_Lin.tgz (XXX=Month NNNN=year) in the
    directory just created in step 2
4.- Decompress the file .tgz with the following command:
     -> tar -xzvf FullProf_Suite_XXXXNNNN_Lin.tgz
5.- Tell the users to activate the environment variable FULLPROF in their configuration file (see below)

Local Mode (Installation for a single user)
1.- Create a directory in which you want to hold the programs of the FullProf_Suite.
    e.g.: $HOME/FullProf_Suite
2.- For doing that you must execute the following commands:
     -> cd $HOME
     -> mkdir FullProf_Suite
     -> cd FullProf_Suite
3.- Copy the file FullProf_Suite_XXXXNNNN_Linux64.tgz (XXXX=Month NNNN=year) in the
    directory just created in step 2
4.- Decompress the file .tgz with the following command:
     -> tar -xzvf FullProf_Suite_XXXXNNNN_Linux64.tgz
5.- For the first installation of the FullProf Suite, execute the command:"source Set_FULLPROF_Envi"
    That's all!
    If something is going wrong you should manually modify the configuration file to activate 
    the environment variable FULLPROF (see below)

Activation of the environment variable of the FullProf_Suite
1.- Depending of the SHELL of the user the commands are different. The aim is to create the
    environment variable FULLPROF.
    To know what is the shell one is using you should execute the command:
    -> echo $SHELL

    Generally it is one of the following: Bourne (sh, bash), Korn(ksh), C(csh)

2.- From now we suppose we are using the Bourne of bash type. If you have another one you must
    consult how to do the equivalent commands we explain below.

3.- Edit the setting file of the user. In our case it should be in the root directory of
    the user and the name is .bashrc or .bash_profile

4.- Add the environment variable FULLPROF, that has as value the absolute path of the directory
    in which we have installed the programs of the FullProf Suite.

    For instance:

5.- Add the above directory to the PATH variable
6.- Export the defined variable
                  export FULLPROF
7.- The changes will be effective on opening a new terminal window. To verify that everything is OK,
    just type in your terminal the command:
    -> echo $FULLPROF
    The system will show the directory in which you have installed the programs.

After doing all the above steps all the programs of the FullProf Suite are available from whatever
working directory. If you need to update the FullProf Suite you just have to do the steps 3 and 4 of the
General or Local mode described above. Only in the case you decide to use another directory you have to
redefine the environment variable. You can use the programs in console mode or use the toolbar (command
tfp) to access the different programs.

Depending of your installation you may need to install the libraries of OpenMotif version 2.3.
Do that only in case one of the GUIs doesn't work and you see a message of the form:
  "" not available
or something similar.
