Crystallographic information files (CIFs) are now widely used for recording crystal-structure data in the authorized manner. Two macros, cif2pdf and E2J, have recently been added to integrated assistance environments for the RIETAN-FP–VENUS system. Cif2pdf is used to convert CIFs, which are obtained by lst2cif and refln macros from output files of RIETAN-FP, into reports with the portable document format (PDF). The resulting PDF files may include (a) graphs such as Rietveld-refinement patterns, and Williamson–Hall and Halder–Wagner plots output by gnuplot and (b) images such as structural models and three-dimensional electron- and nuclear-density distributions drawn by VESTA. E2J practically translates LaTeX text files, *.tex, output by cif2pdf into Japanese by means of a stream editor, sed. A set of files input by cif2pdf and procedures to execute cif2pdf and E2J are described in detail. These two documentation utilities must enhance the value of the assistance environments greatly.
