Fit2d ?

#1 Post by spark » 2011.07.25 12:34

Hello SAXS-Forum,

I have used now fit2d for quite a while. I observed that the various versions of fit2d behave differently, in-particular if the macro-mode is used. It behaves completely different on Mac and Windows and I ended up with different fit2d scripts on my platforms.
Has somebody observed this as well?

Kind regards
Spark

Hi Saxier,
has anybody recently used fit2d under Intel Mac in Version fit2d_14_101_i686_MacOSX to create a BSL mask file by any chance, please?

My mask is always destroyed and it looks like

but on the same machine running a linux guest OS it looks how it should be. No problems with the fit2d linux version, but there are problems with the latest Mac version. :?

I know this is not a forum to support fit2d, but maybe somebody has noticed the same error by any chance?
Thanks for any comments.
Regards
Spark

PS: I have tested this latest fit2d version now on two different macs. The created binary BSL file is 16MB big, whereas it is usually under linux only 4MB. There is something odd going on with the latest Intel Mac-fit2d version when it comes to save a BSL file properly.

Have you tried earlier versions?
I've only used fit2d_12_077_i686_WXP.exe for creating a mask and it worked fine.

Hi Al.
Of course, I used the latest linux version and it was fine. However, I have a new Mac and intend to use it for everything. The fit2d - software is in general available for Mac, so it is a shame that is not running smoothly on the Mac. Using Windows on a Mac is like driving a slow car although there is the possibility to use a Porsche. :-)

Why is fit2d not opensource anyway?

Furthermore, I am looking for an all-in one solution (2D-->1D, masking, batch processing, normalisation with regard to transmission, calibration). Do you know by any chance a program that would offer all or most of these features?

Sometimes you can't drive a Porsche off-road (unless it's a Cayenne) :-)

1) Check Konarev et al. 2006 p. 278 and Petoukhov et al. 2007 p. s224.
2) Based on the tools for next generation pipeline there is an EDNA-based pipeline running at ESRF.
