The Orient program provides tools for the development and evaluation
of analytical models of interactions between molecules, or between
molecules and solid surfaces. It does not provide any models itself;
they have to be obtained elsewhere, for example by using the CamCASP
program of Misquitta and Stone.

Obtaining the program

In a suitable directory, run the command
  git clone
This will construct a clone of the program files in the subdirectory
