1. Is there a symmetry group which creates this diamond lattice? Yes, it's one of the 230 Euclidean symmetry groups. You can use the Eucsyms external module to visualize these. Offhand I don't know which one it is; I'll forward the question to the author of the module (Olaf Holt). You should be able to find it in some standard reference on crystallography. 2. We are both physics students with very little knowledge in group theory/algebra - may you recommend a good text about this subject? I'll let someone else answer this one. 3. Which version is actual? In our anonymous ftp directory, pub/geomview/geomview.tar.Z is the latest version of all the binaries, documentation, and data. (version 1.3.2) There is an old release of the source in pub/geomview/old/geomview-src.tar.Z, but we haven't had time yet to pack up the source for the latest version. 1. The piping feature sounds very interesting. I familiar with C and C++ but not with UNIX system programming. I would like to have a not too long example which displays graphical information through geomview. All the external modules are examples of the piping feature. There's a module called example in the old source distribution that has a tutorial to go along with it. Also, the external module binary for gvclock is human-readable, since it's just an awk script. You can run any module from the Unix command line to see the commands it normally pipes to geomview. (Some of the modules use the echo command to wait for geomview to acknowledge receipt of commands before sending over more information.) 2. Does a mailing list exist about geomview? Yes, I just put you on it. Thus far there has been no traffic, though. Tamara Munzner ((555) 555-5555 munzner at geom.umn.edu The Geometry Center
