STORE-FRAGMENT is used to store a fragment for later use.
It is often convenient to store a search fragment and then fetch it a later time, either to re-run the same search or to modify the fragment and run a different search. The ability to store a fragment is particularly useful if the fragment is large and/or complicated.
Suppose we have generated the morphine fragment and defined it - see (i) below.
The FILES menu appears on the screen - see (ii) below.
Structure number "n" written.
The value of "n" depends on the number of structures that have already been stored in the SAVE file (e.g., <problemname>.SVE in the VAX/VMS, Slicon Graphics and SUN implementations, where <problemname> is the name you used when you started the program).
If you do not have a structure on the screen when you select STORE-FRAGMENT, the program will sound an alert and produce the error message:
You haven't generated a structure to STORE! Please press <RETURN> to continue. Thank you.
