29<h3>Running RAWPLOT</H3></A>
30Below is an example of how to plot diffraction data in RAWPLOT.
31RAWPLOT is a good program for checking that data are appropriately
32formatted for GSAS. The screen input and output are shown in the
33box below. Computer output is formatted <tt>like this</tt> while
34user input is
35shown in <tt><B>bold</B></tt>. The generated plots are shown
36below the screen output.

95After the "t" and "p" commands are typed
96(t for time-of-flight/two-theta and p to plot), the entire
97range of data are plotted.

105<h3>On-the-fly reformatting</H3>
106GSAS has fairly strict formatting requirements. In
107UNIX experiment, raw data and instrument parameter
108files must be 80 characters to a line and may not
109have any line separators (no carriage return or
110linefeed characters). In Windows and DOS, these
111files must again be exactly 82 characters per line
112and each line must end with a carriage return and
113linefeed character. (These restrictions are being
114removed from newer versions of GSAS).
116EXPGUI attempts to fix incorrectly formatted files
117when they are encountered. Experiment (.EXP) files
118are read (when possible) automatically. No warning
119messages are given, by this can be detected
120because the title bar will not that the file
121is "modified" immediately after the file is read.
122When a file is saved, it is rewritten in the
123correct format.
125<BR clear=left>
126<img src="addhswarn.gif" ALIGN=LEFT>
127When histograms and instrument parameter files are read,
128their format is inspected. If an error is noted an error
129message is displayed, for example to the left.
130If OK is presses, the original
131file is renamed and a properly formatted file is created.
132In this example file
133<tt>test.raw</tt> is renamed to
135and a properly formatted version of
136<tt>test.raw</tt> file is created.
