       massXpert             —             Model linear polymers, simulate chemical reactions and
       predict mass spectrometric data


       massxpert [options]  [filename ...]


       This manual page documents briefly the massxpert software shipped within the  msXpertSuite
       software suite.

       This  program  allows  one  to model linear polymer chemistries using a dedicated grammar.
       Once the polymer chemistry of interest is defined, the user is allowed to use it to define
       polymer  sequence  files.  These files serve as the starting point for the simulation of a
       large set of chemical reactions onto that polymer sequence. This software is comprised  of
       four main submodules:

          ·  XpertDef: module to define brand new polymer chemistries;

          ·  XpertCalc:  module  to  perform  any  mass  calculation  taking advantage of defined
             polymer chemistries;

          ·  XpertEdit: module to edit polymer sequences of any specific polymer chemistry and to
             graphically  perform a wide array of chemical reactions along with the corresponding
             mass spectrum simulations;

          ·  XpertMiner: module to compare with maximum flexibility any number  of  mass-to-ratio
             (m/z) lists.

Useful reading

       The program is documented fully  in  the  massXpert  User  Manual,  that  is  packaged  in
       msxpertsuite-doc.   That  manual  is  available  in  the  form  of  a  PDF-formatted  file
