converts names containing OCR (optical character recognition) error.

molconvert 'smiles:T*' -s '3-rnethyl-l-methoxynaphthalene' -f name:ocr

disable conversion of systematic names

-commondisable conversion of common names (such as aspirin)
-elementsdisable conversion of the name of chemical elements, for instance carbon, sodium, .... Even though "carbon" is not converted, "methane" still is, since it is a molecule name for CH4, not an element.
-ionsdisable conversion of atomic ion syntax, for instance "Ca2+".
-groupsdisable conversion of groups and fragments, such as "oxo" or "methyl".
-casdisable the conversion of CAS registry numbers
-casNamesdisable the conversion of CAS names
nameField=FIELDsets the field/property that stores the original name. By default, the molecule title is used.
dict=PATH specify the location of the custom dictionary. Example: name:dict=C:\Users\Me\MyDictionary.smi .
webservice=URL enable the usage of a custom webservice at the given URL

Some of these options are mainly useful when configuring which names Document to Structure recognizes.

To enable an option, a + sign can be used before the option name. For instance, both forms ocr and +ocr are accepted to enable this option.
