RE: AMBER6 on IBMSP3 Installation

NAMELIST is kind of strange with IBM's Fortran. There's an "old" format and
a "new" one. I believe you want the old one; the deafult is the new one.

Try setting an environment variable:

export XLFRTEOPTS="namelist=old"

to force the run-time system to use the old format. There's also a
SETRTEOPTS call one can make in a program, but I've never tried that.

Hope this helps.

Subject: AMBER6 on IBMSP3 Installation

        While trying to compile on IBM SP3 (with different MACHINE files
that I got from the mailing list), I face this typical problem. As I start
sander, it comes out with the error:

1525-090 The NAMELIST READ statement cannot be completed because an
incorrect character was encountered in a NAMELIST group name or item name.
The program will recover by discontinuing further processing of the READ
It does one step in sander and then stops! Can anyone kindly let me know
how to go about this please?
The input tested aganist AMBER5 succesfully (on SGI-Power Challange) was
used to test AMBER6 compilation. Also, with test runs with the sample
files that come with AMBER6, it gives the same error. So I presume that
this is not a problem with my input.
Thanking you in advance,
