The package mainly consists of the programs [[XDS]] (which processes a single dataset), [[XSCALE]] (for scaling of several datasets) , and [[XDSCONV]] (for conversion of a reflection output file to other formats). Additional auxiliary programs are [[cellparm]], [[2cbf]] and [[merge2cbf]]. [[XDS-viewer]], for visualizing frames, can be downloaded separately (see [[Installation]]).\n\nThe author of the program package is Wolfgang Kabsch (Wolfgang dot Kabsch at mpimf-heidelberg dot mpg dot de); since 2007 I contribute code, handle and fix bugs and teach XDS usage. \n\nThe program is free for academic use, and can be downloaded from http://xds.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de/html_doc/downloading.html (if the download from that site fails, there's a copy at https://{{SERVERNAME}}/xds ).\n\nDocumentation is at http://xds.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de/html_doc/XDS.html ; possibly old documentation is [http://strucbio.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/pub/xds/XDS_html_doc/index.html here].\n\nAn open-source viewer [[XDS-Viewer]] is [http://xds-viewer.sourceforge.net available] for visualization of the control images written by [[XDS]] (and [[XSCALE]]). E.g. [[Adxv]] can also visualize XDS output files.\n\nThere is another program available, which serves to produce additional output of tables and plots. This is not part of the official XDS package; its name is [[XDSSTAT]] (written and distributed by Kay Diederichs). Yet another program that produces frame-wise (for XDS_ASCII.HKL) or dataset-wise (for XSCALE.HKL) CC<sub>1/2</sub> statistics is [[XDSCC12]]. \n\n[[XDSGUI]], a graphical user interface, serves to help using XDS.\n\n== Links to XDS papers by Wolfgang Kabsch ==\n\n# [http://dx.doi.org/10.1107/S0021889887009737 ''J.

Open access.\n\n== Purpose of the Wiki ==\nThe purpose of this Wiki is to provide an accurate resource for XDS users, and to provide explanations and hints for the successful use of XDS. I (Kay Diederichs) try to keep the Wiki up-to-date with XDS versions and insights. I collect [[Tips and Tricks]] for XDS usage, explanations of its output, and recommendations for the parameters in [[XDS.INP]] (if it appears useful to deviate from their defaults).\n\nTo see what's there already, go to [[Special:Allpages|List of all pages]]. A good starting point is the article about [[XDS.INP]] where the keywords and parameters for running XDS are described. There is also a [[wishlist]], and [[Known Bugs]], and [[Quality Control]] (under construction).\n\n== Contributing to the Wiki ==\n* The MediaWiki software used here works in the same way as the well-known Wikipedia. This means that anyone can read articles, but for editing existing pages, and creating new ones (this happens automatically when you click on a [[red link]]), you need a [[Creating an account|userid and password]].\n* Short introduction to [[creating an article]]\n\n== Wiki contents ==\n\n* [[Special:Allpages|List of all pages]] - to see which pages exist already ...\n\n* [[Topics]] as an attempt to provide a hierarchy of pages\n\n* new articles: [[SSX]], [[Xscale_isocluster]], [[LIB]]\n\n== News ==\n[[Installation]]\n\n[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WU9NrILECo XDS and XDSGUI.
