RasMol is a widely used program for molecular graphics visualisation. See the RasMol web site for more general information.
Thomas Uram of Argonne National Laboratory created a Shared Application version of Rasmol, version 184.108.40.206 for use in the Access Grid. An example of SharedApplication RasMol is shown above. Some enhancements have been implemented at the University of Queensland Vislab by Stephane Bidet, a visiting student from University in France. These enhancements were:
Fix a 99% cpu usage bug: when run without a terminal (the main use situation when running as a Shared Application), RasMol would freerun looking for input from the non-existant terminal
Fix a session joining problem: notification of a participant taking the lead was not being correctly processed, resulting in new participants not being able to join the session.
Update version: Thomas Uram's original changes together with our Rasmol bug fix were applied to the latest release of RasMol (version 2.7.3)
