Babel

BABEL is a program designed to interconvert a number of file formats currently used in molecular modelling.

Babel will read the following file types:

Alchemy AMBER PREP Ball and Stick
Biosym .CAR Boogie Cacao Cartesian
Cambridge CADPAC CHARMm Chem3D Cartesian 1
Chem3D Cartesian 2 CSD CSSR CSD FDAT
CSD GSTAT Free Form Fractional GAMESS Output
Gaussian Z-Matrix Gaussian Output Hyperchem HIN
Mac Molecule Macromodel Micro World
MM2 Input MM2 Ouput MM3
MMADS MDL MOLfile MOLIN
Mopac Cartesian Mopac Internal Mopac Output
PDB Quanta ShelX
Spartan Sybyl Mol Sybyl Mol2
XYZ

Babel will write the following file types:

Alchemy Ball and Stick Cacao Cartesian
CAChe MolStruct Chem3D Cartesian 1 Chem3D Cartesian 2
ChemDraw Conn. Table CSD CSSR Gamess Input
Gaussian Cartesian Gaussian Z-matrix Hyperchem HIN
IDATM Mac Molecule Macromodel
Micro World MM2 Input MM2 Ouput
MM3 MMADS MDL Molfile
Mopac Cartesian Mopac Internal PDB
Report Spartan Sybyl Mol
Sybyl Mol2 XYZ

Babel is capable of assigning hybridization, bond order, and connectivity when these elements are not present in the input file.
The xmenu contains an interface which allows for the selection of files and file types for both input and output.

The Babel README.1ST file is also available as a Web document.
