    Reactor's command-line tool: react

    React command-line is the high performance, virtual reaction enumeration tool of ChemAxon's Reactor. Reactor provides a handy way to process virtual reactions that rapidly generates compound libraries from starting compounds according to a given reaction equation; moreover, reactions containing rules defined in the Chemical Terms language can provide synthetically feasible products. All Reactor features are accessible via the react command-line tool.

    Using the react command-line interface

    After installing the JChem Suite on your computer, react is available to use. Reactor is platform independent: it is equally available for Microsoft Windows®, Mac OS, and Linux platforms.

    Read more about the usage of JChem batch files and shell scripts, such as react.bat and react. To execute Reactor's command-line tool, all you need to do is to open a command line interface and run command reactas follows:

     **react**  -r <reaction file/string> [<input file(s)/string(s)>] [<options>]

    {primary} Note : The syntax of commands can be different under various command line shells (bash, tcsh, zsh, etc.).
