EXHAUSTIVE

Function

When EXHAUSTIVE is highlighted (the default) then the search will be exhaustive for all crystal fragments which pass all tests imposed by SELECT commands and SPHERES of EXCLUSION or INCLUSION.

When EXHAUSTIVE is not highlighted the search will continue until NFRAG (NUMBER-OF-FRAGS) crystal fragments have been located and which pass all tests imposed by SELECT commands and SPHERES of EXCLUSION or INCLUSION.

The default value of NFRAG is 1 if not set by NUMBER-OF-FRAGS in the 2D-CONSTRAIN sub-menu.

Remarks

In most situations the EXHAUSTIVE and OVERLAP commands are both highlighted. This setting results in the following "home" prompt in the dialogue area:

If EXHAUSTIVE is toggled off then the first line of the "home" prompt would be:

Ex.1 Consider the structures displayed on the facing page.

Suppose we conduct a survey of the four torsion angles of the 4-membered carbocyclic ring.

If the search is conducted with EXHAUSTIVE and OVERLAP both highlighted then all occurrences of the 4-ring crystal fragment should be located, including those which have atoms in common

(ie. OVERLAP is permitted). The fragments located are:

Ex.2 Consider the structures displayed on the facing page.

Suppose we conduct a survey of the four torsion angles of the 4-membered carbocyclic ring.

If the search is conducted with EXHAUSTIVE highlighted but OVERLAP not highlighted then all occurrences of the 4-ring crystal fragment should be located, excluding those which have atoms in common (ie. OVERLAP is not permitted). The fragments located are:

BHPNPH C51   C61   C71   C11

Ex.3 Consider the structures displayed on the facing page.

Suppose we conduct a survey of the four torsion angles of the 4-membered carbocyclic ring.

If the search is conducted with EXHAUSTIVE not highlighted and OVERLAP not highlighted then only one occurrence of the 4-ring crystal fragment should be located in each entry. The fragments located are:
