Basic Usage (See Wiki)

Create Spectra
//Creates an UV/Vis Spectrum
const string path = "files/uvvis.dsw";
var uvvis = SpectrumFactory.Create(path);

//You can also create spectra by choosing the provider 
//explicitly. e.g. csv files
//Reads in an CSV Spectrum (first data only)
const string path = "files/uvvis.csv";
var prov = new GenericCSVProvider(path);
var uvvis = new Spectrum(prov);

//To read in all CSV Data stored as (X,Y) pairs use the MultiCSVProvider
//Each Spectrum will be stored as DataPoint[] in MultiXYData
const string file = "files/multicsv.csv";
var provider = new MultiCSVProvider(file);
Create Molecules
//Creates a molecule from cif file
const string path = "files/cif.cif";
var mol = MoleculeFactory.Create(path);

//You can also create molecules by selecting the provider yourself
const string path = "files/benzene.mol2";
var provider = new Mol2DataProvider(path);
var mol = new Molecule(provider);

//...or by just adding the Atoms & Bonds as Lists
const string path = "files/cif.cif";
var provider = new CIFDataProvider(path);
var mol = new Molecule(provider.Atoms, provider.Bonds);
