Techniques have been developed for the generation of Wiswesser Line Notations (WLN), which require knowledge neither of rules for manual conversion of structures to line notations nor of computer programming. The desired WLN are obtained simply by drawing the structures of the compounds of interest on a tablet, which is linked to an appropriately programmned computer.
