A FORTRAN program HABIT, which has been developed to aid in morphological predictions of molecular crystals, is described. The program generates a three-dimensional model of the crystal by translating a unit cell along the crystal directions to create a sphere limited by a user-defined radius. By a pairwise summation of the atom-atom interactions between a central molecule and all other molecules inside the sphere, the pogram calculates the lattice, slice and attachment energies. Since the at...
