Usually I use online programs and structure drawing tools to find the SMILES of a compound. How to find the SMILES without software? Where to find resources to learn it?

    $\begingroup$ How could be software anything but logical... $\endgroup$ – Mithoron May 16 '17 at 15:26
  • $\begingroup$ @Mithoron My bad, I guess logical isn't the right word. How do you find SMILES without software. $\endgroup$ – Pritt says Reinstate Monica May 16 '17 at 15:28

    $\begingroup$ You simply need to know how SMILES works. $\endgroup$ – Mithoron May 16 '17 at 15:39

    $\begingroup$ @PrittBalagopal - If you see the links above, there are related questions. There's the Daylight SMILES tutorial and theory and OpenSMILES specification all from Google searches. The concept of SMILES was to be easy to write by a human, once the syntax is understood. $\endgroup$ – Geoff Hutchison May 16 '17 at 15:41
