cif/ Converting all simple fractions (such as 1/4) into decimal fractions (in case of 1/4 that would be 0.25). A shell script that was used for conversion (eval_numeric_fields.com) is also provided. One file (4/4300051.cif) was misinterpreted by the Perl's eval() function (due to completely crazy error in the CIF file, no problem with Perl), therefore it was corrected by hand.
cif/ Reconstructing spacegroup designators from the symmetry operators were possible. The comands used can be found in the log file reformat-spacegroups-2009.11.14.log committed with the current revision. Only lines that contained spacegroup designators were changed, and all files pass vcif test after the conversion.
