OEMolBaseTypeΒΆ

The OEMolBaseType namespace encodes symbolic constants representing specific OEMolBase class implementation types.

See also

This namespace contains the following constants:

Undefined

Used to signal errors.

OEDefault

The default molecule implementation used by OEChem.

OEDBMol

A molecule implementation designed to have a very small memory footprint. OEMolBase.Compress can be called to dramatically reduce memory consumption. However, OEMolBase.UnCompress must be called to make the molecule usable again.

OEMiniMol

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 footprint. OEMolBase.Compress will reduce memory consumption, however, it will put the molecule in a “read-only” state. OEMolBase.UnCompress will make the molecule writeable again.

Warning

OEGroupBase information will be lost when compressing molecules that are constructed with the OEMolBaseType.OEMiniMol type.

MaxType

The maximum numerical value possible from this namespace.
