If you install the ToposPro program on your own machine you
can get it to compute up to 127 terms of the coordinations sequences for
any of
the structures that RCSR or ToposPro knows about.  This includes thousands
of crystals,
nets, tilings, etc in 2D and 3D. Unfortunately ToposPro
requires a Windows machine!  Remember them?  Everyone I know uses a Mac, of

Using ToposPro would be a much better solution
than just using the ten terms that RCSR gives you.

ToposPro also contains a lot more structures than RCSR does.

This would potentially lead to thousands
of new sequences for the OEIS.
