BALL (Biochemical Algorithms Library) is an application framework
in C++ that has been specifically designed for rapid software
development in Molecular Modeling and Computational Molecular Biology.
It provides an extensive set of data structures as well as classes
for Molecular Mechanics, advanced solvation methods, comparison and
analysis of protein structures, file import/export, and visualization.
BALL is currently being developed in the groups of Oliver Kohlbacher
(University of Tuebingen, Germany), Andreas Hildebrandt (Saarland
University, Saarbruecken, Germany), and Hans-Peter Lenhof (Saarland
University, Saarbruecken, Germany).
This package contains the view - independent parts of BALL (libBALL,
data directories et al., except for libVIEW) and can be installed on
machines without X11.
