POWPREF can be run in one of three ways. It can be invoked from the
menu item in the Powder menu (see to the left), or as a button in
the button bar (see below) or by pressing the Alt-P key combination.
Once POWPREF is started, a window is opened to watch the program progress, as is shown above.
Since POWPREF modifies the .EXP file,
a message, as shown to the left, is displayed.
Pressing "Load new" causes the new .EXP file to be reread.
Pressing "Continue editing" causes EXPGUI to continue to edit the
previous version of the .EXP file. If more changes are made, and
the .EXP file is saved, the changes made by POWPREF will be lost.
POWPREF makes only minor changes to the .EXP file, so there
is little reason to reject the changes, but if a program, such
as GENLES has made many incorrect changes to an experiment, the
"Continue editing" option provides an easy way to keep the .EXP file
from before the run.
To examine the results of the refinement in more detail, consult the .LST file. This can be examined using the LSTVIEW program. This program is shown above. Note that the contents of the LSTVIEW box are updated as the refinement progresses.
