    3737EXPEDT can do -- but that 10% covers most of the
    3838actions that I use frequently (and that I could code without a major effort).
     39EXPGUI is written in the
     40<A Href="">Tcl/Tk</A> scripting language, so it is largely platform independent.

    101109<p><br><B>So what can't EXPGUI do?</B>
    102110<blockquote>Much more than it can do. At this time, EXPGUI can't
    103 delete atoms or change their type.
     111change atom types.
    104112It cannot create or edit soft constraints
    105113or hard constraints, other than atomic and profile constraints. It cannot be used on
    106 magnetic scattering parameters or on single-crystal histograms. It can't
    107 even change the profile function number. It also can't change the
     114magnetic scattering parameters or on single-crystal histograms.
     115It also can't be used change the range of data used or the
    108116excluded data regions.
    109 <p>I hope to add some of these capabilities in the future, but EXPEDT is
    110 a huge program and it is unlikely that anyone will replace it any time
    111 soon. I will consider adding more functionality if requested and the job
    112 is reasonably tractable.
     117<p>New features are planned for EXPGUI, but EXPEDT is
     118a huge program and EXPGUI will never have all the features in EXPEDT.
     119I will consider suggestions for adding more functionality to EXPGUI
     120if requested and the job is reasonably tractable.
    115123<p><br><B>What type of computers will EXPGUI run on?</B>
    116 <blockquote>EXPGUI requires Tcl/Tk. While that is somewhat restrictive,
     124<blockquote>EXPGUI requires a working version of
     125<A Href="">Tcl/Tk</A>, scripting language.
     126While that is somewhat restrictive,
    117127it still means that EXPGUI will run on many more platforms than GSAS does.
    118128Most of the development has been done in LINUX with some testing on SGI
    127137<p><br><B>EXPGUI would be much more of use to me if....</B>
    128138<blockquote>Gee, you want to add some features... Great! You have all the
    129 EXPGUI sources and Tcl/Tk is free. Oh, you want me to do it. Well, I might
    130 get to it if you ask, particularly if you help.
    131 I am looking for good ideas on how to design GUI's
    132 for different aspects of experiment editing,
    133 with an attractive, intuitive and compact GUI.</blockquote>
