24<H1>GSAS Nickel example using EXPGUI (Intro)</H1>
25</CENTER>
26<H1>Introduction</H1>
27
28The following pages show how to use EXPGUI to
29perform the same tutorial refinement for Nickel powder,
30presented in the
31<A HREF="http://www.nist.gov/cgi-bin/exit_nist.cgi?url=ftp://ftp.lanl.gov/public/gsas/manual/manual.pdf">
32GSAS manual</A> (pages 18-63 in the 9/1/94 edition) but
33using EXPGUI instead of EXPEDT, as done in the manual.

35<P>
36<I>Note:</I> 
37<blockquote>
38while it is possible to have your working GSAS files
39(for example the .EXP file) in a separate directory from
40the raw data file(s), I discourage this practice as it then
41becomes quite difficult to later copy or move the .EXP
42file from one directory or computer to another.
43For this reason, I suggest copying the data (.RAW) files
44into the directory where you will create the Experiment
45(.EXP) file.
46<P>
47For this example, I am working in directory
48<tt>/home/toby/work</tt>, and the
49data files and parameters files are in directory
50<tt>/home/toby/gsas/example</tt>, so
51I copy the Nickel data and instrument parameter file using UNIX commands:
52<PRE>
53       cp /home/toby/gsas/example/nickel.raw   /home/toby/work/
54       cp /home/toby/gsas/example/inst_tof.prm /home/toby/work/
55</PRE>
56For Windows I would likely copy the files by dragging their icons between
57the appropriate folders.

86<H2>Sample files</H2>
87Sample .EXP files have been saved at points through the tutorial. These
88are indicated in the tutorial as ".EXP snapshots". These files have been
89reformatted for DOS/Windows, but EXPGUI users will have no trouble
90using them on either platform.
