Detailed Description

Used to transform from z-matrix to cartesian coordinates.

Used with OpenBabel::InternalToCartesian and OpenBabel::CartesianToInternal methods. Does not perform any actions itself. You must create or free OBAtom pointers yourself.

The z-matrix representation uses coordinates relative to up to three atoms, which need not be bonded in any fashion. A rough sketch of the a, b, and c atoms would be:


where the OBInternalCoord record reflects the '*' atom.

Does not detect if NULL pointers are used. You should be careful.

Member Data Documentation

First connection for this atom (i.e., distance).

Second reference atom (i.e., angle).

Third reference atom (i.e., dihedral / torsion angle).

double _dst

Distance between this atom and _a.

double _ang

Angle between this, _a, and _b (i.e., _a is the vertex).

double _tor

Torsional/dihedral angle between this, _a, _b, and _c.
