I have started to work on the Python3 port. It is a much more important works as expected. It is also hard to test the code, as many file path are hard coded and are not provided with the code. I will probably do the job, but not as fast as expected.

Hi Jerome,

Would your plan be to rewrite it for Python3, or leave it with Python2 ?

One of the first issues I encountered with trying to set it up from the command line using the v0.14 source and included setup.py, was the number of print statements that now require parentheses, for example.

After that, attempting to launch bkchem from the v0.14 unzipped source failed for me with a lack of a "_main_" module.

It seems to me from that limited foray, that quite a lot of work would be involved to switch over to Python3, but I'm not a programmer, so perhaps my guesstimate is completely wrong.

It seems that the last of BKChem is quite old (2010). It need probably some rewriting to write on recent OS. I just tested, toue v0.14 source works perfectly with Ubuntu 18.04.

If some of you are interested, I may create a fork on github and update the code.
