[Chimera-users] Problem reading Delphi .phi into Chimera

Hi Elaine,

I read the Delphi .phi files only to Chimera. I'll check again the Delphi output to see what the difference between this and other files that I read successfully into Chimera.

Hi Boaz,
I may be wrong, but the error message sounds like there could be an inconsistency between record size and file size, rather than some specific size limit having been reached.  I.e., the file might be corrupted or truncated, or the values written at unexpected precision. Do you use any other programs that read phi files, and if so, can they read this file?
