what is the difference between acceptor and acceptorcount plugins available in marvinview.

acceptor plugin gives the acceptor count but there are some differences in the count given by acceptor and acceptorcount plugins

The 'acceptor-site-count' means the maximum number of the  "H-bonds" which can be formed between an acceptor and a suitable donor at the same time.

For example:   in acetone the "keto group" is the acceptor.  We say that the acceptor count is "1"   and the "acceptor-site-count" is "2"  ,namely the two lone pairs of the oxygen atom.
