OEMolBaseType namespace encodes symbolic
constants representing specific OEMolBase class
This namespace contains the following constants:
Used to signal errors.
The default molecule implementation used by OEChem.
A molecule implementation designed to have a very small memory
OEMolBase.Compress can be called
to dramatically reduce memory consumption. However,
OEMolBase.UnCompress must be called to make
the molecule usable again.
A molecule implementation designed to have a small memory
footprint, however, the molecule is still usable for molecular
algorithms, i.e., substructure searching. This molecule
implementation has been tuned for high performance in-memory
substructure searching, while maintaining a small memory
OEMolBase.Compress will reduce
memory consumption, however, it will put the molecule in a
make the molecule writeable again.
OEGroupBase information will be lost
when compressing molecules that are constructed with the
The maximum numerical value possible from this namespace.
