nXDS: Input Parameters

All input parameters needed for data processing are collected in the file named nXDS.INP which must reside in the current directory where nXDS will be invoked. File templates (examples) for nXDS.INP are available for the detectors supported by nXDS. Their use is strongly encouraged as they reduce input errors and simplify program usage. Many of the parameters are assigned default values that work fine in most cases and rarely need to be changed. Thus, the task of running nXDS amounts to just editing a few parameter values in the selected input file template (for example nXDS-ADSC.INP if data images were recorded by the ADSC detector) and renaming the edited file into nXDS.INP. A complete list of all parameters that can be specified in nXDS.INP is provided by nXDS-generic.INP.
