Dear David Case,

I think this is the same I think of it now!
Even the parts that seems to compile did not work at all.
AMBER 6 is FORTRAN 66 in many places, and that is what the ifc
does not like!
e.g. "bad" array sizes in subroutines as in:
      interger a(1)
will crash at least at runtime.
It does not make sence to me to put work in it any more, as there
is a running g77 option.


It is better to wait for the arrival of AMBER 7 here.
I ordered it befor starting playing around with AMBER 6 and ifc.

Thanks for your help.
