At the bottom of this page you have links to download the latest and/or specific
versions of PdbStat program. It will ask you for a user and password and you will
be allowed to download it. Binaries availale:
- Linux: 64-bit and 32-bit. The distribution comes with both versions statically compiled
so will work (hopefully) on any Linux distro/machine. By default there is a link in bin
directory pointing to the 64-bit version that will work only on 64-bit machines.
If someone is interested in using the 32-bit version, the link in bin directory should
be changed to point to the 32-bit executable.
- Mac OSX: (64-bit). Installation instructions are the same as Linux versions (see below).
Xcode should be installed in the machine. Remember that it has to be run from terminal
(no graphics version). Also, things like gnuplot are expected to be installed in the
machine in order to work properly. If you have some time to do the test and know how to
install (gnuplot, Macports) on the Mac, please use it and let me know how it works in
NOTE: thanks to some testers now it can be installed easily without Macports (libs are
- Unfortunately there is no separate documentation for the program at this time.
- Work is in progress to have a PDF document showing commands, use, explanations,
- Once the program is installed you can always have access to available commands,
explanations and some examples through the 'help' facility command in the program.
- Also, you can find some useful explanations and hints at this
from NESG (North East Sructural Genomics). (Thanks to J. Aramini that keeps this
info with examples updated).

Installation instructions: (I assume installation will be in /usr/local/PdbStat)
- For the following commands you will need to become root.
- Download the tar gzipped file to your computer
- mkdir /usr/local/PdbStat
- cd /usr/local/PdbStat
- Extract contents: tar xvfz PdbStatXXXXXXX.tgz
- make it readable by everybody as there are some initalization files that
the code needs to use:
chmod a+r   -R /usr/local/PdbStat/lib
- Int he distribution there are two directories bin and lib
and a pretty simple bash script pdbstat .
- Edit the pdbstat
script to reflect the PdbStat location in your computer:
look for PdbStatROOT at the fourth line in the script and make it
PdbStatROOT=/usr/local/PdbStat (or your choice of location)
- Just put the pdbstat script in /usr/local/bin (or any place
in your PATH) and it will be ready to run.
- change to any directory where you have write permission and type pdbstat
