CleanCif -- a comment stripper

Cleancif is a filter program for removing comments from the .cif files that wol generates. It is necessary because some programs do not recognize the format wol uses for comments:

9 comments comments comments ;

Cleancif takes redirected input and output; given a file wolstuff.cif, type

cleancif < wolstuff.cif > nocomments.cif

To produce a cif file without comments.

Another tool in this toolkit, Boxify, seems to do this task also.
