Orthogonalization Convention

        The X-PLOR orthogonalization/fractionalization convention defines a in same direction as x; b is chosen such that y is in the plane defined by a and b. This convention is used by all X-PLOR routines. To avoid difficulties when using a different convention, read the coordinates, fractionalize them according to your convention, and then orthogonalize them using the X-PLOR convention.
