VEGA was developed to create a bridge between most of the molecular software packages, like BioDock (4), Quanta/CHARMm, Insight II, MoPac, etc. VEGA is written in high portable code (standard C language) and can be executed on a lot of hardware systems simply recompiling the source code. The algorithm of file conversion can be schematized by the following chart:

VEGA can manage indifferently packed and unpacked files thanks to the included Data De/compression Library, as shown in the following chart:

VEGA includes also a graphic interface to control the MoPac calculations and thus MoPac 6 is included in the software package.
