Options

    Parameter Description
    -h --help Print command-line help
    - import structures from standard input
    --geometry WxH+X+Y set preferred window size ( W x H ) and location ( X , Y )
    --real-time display input stream in real-time
    --spreadsheet use spreadsheet-like viewer with one row per input record (default if the input file contains data fields)
    --gridbag use compact matrix-like viewer with more molecules in a row (default if the input file does not contain data fields)
    -c <number> maximum number of visible columns for GridBagView (default: 2)
    -r <number> maximum number of visible rows for GridBagView (default: 2)
    -n <number> maximum number of molecules to import (default: 1000)
    -s <number> index of the first molecule to import (default: 1)
    -S display unique SMILES code
    -f <f1>:<f2> show specified fields (, , ...) in the given order from an SDfile. Field names are separated by colons.

    Options for displaying additional atomic properties stored in SDfile:

    Parameter Description
    -p <file> palette definition property file*
    -t <tagName> name of the tag in the SDfile that contains property symbols*

    You can also pass options to Java VM when you run the application from the command line.

    Examples

    1. Displaying the first 1000 structures from str.smi:

      mview str.smi

    2. Viewing 500 structures starting at the 9500-th one from str.smi:

      mview -n 500 -s 9500 str.smi

    3. Showing structures and 3 fields (ID, name, and stock) from stock.sdf:

      mview -f "ID:name:stock" stock.sdf

    4. Display in 2 columns, show SMILES code:

      mview -Sc 2 stock.sdf

    5. Search using JChem's command-line search module and display the structure and the ID field from the results:

      jcsearch -q 'Clc1ccccc1' -f sdf input.sdf | mview -f ID -

    6. Displaying the progress of a command-line molecular dynamics simulation in real-time:

      program_producing_molfiles_on_stdout | mview --real-time -

    7. Atom coloring according to property symbols in SDFile:

      mview -p colors.ini -t PPL stock.sdf
