CCL: similar to CLiDE? RE: OSRA: Optical Structure Recognition

 Sent to CCL by: []
 Hi, Igor,
 This sounds like a free version of batch-mode/full version of CLiDE

 Subject: CCL: OSRA: Optical Structure Recognition
 Sent to CCL by: "Igor Filippov [Contr]" [] Dear
 We would like to announce a new addition to the set of chemoinformatics
 tools available from the Computer-Aided Drug Design Group at the
 NCI-Frederick.  OSRA is a utility designed to convert graphical
 representations of chemical structures, such as they appear in journal
 articles, patent documents, textbooks, trade magazines etc., into
 OSRA can read a document in any of the over 90 graphical formats
 parseable by ImageMagick (GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, PS etc.) and
 generate the SMILES representation of the molecular structure images
 encountered within that document.
 You are welcome to download the free standalone version of the software
 at or try our web-based
 interface to
 OSRA available at
 Comments, criticisms, contribution of ideas and participation in further
 development of OSRA are most welcome.
