Re: Interface and Amber 7.0

Actually, this is not entirely correct.

A) Interface was included with the Amber6 distribution.

B) Interface6 works with Sander6, Sander_Classic6 and Gibbs6.

C) Interface6 should work with Gibbs7 since Gibbs7 should have the
   same input as Gibbs6.

D) Sander_Classic is not in the Amber7 distribution. The functionality
   of Sander_Classic is not all in the version of Sander that is
   included with Amber7. If you need Sander_Classic functionality (or
   if the functionality of Sander_Classic is sufficient), use
   Interface6 with Sander_Classic6.

E) I am not sure what differences have been made to the input of
   Sander7 versus Sander6, so I can't say what changes might need
   to be made to Interface to use it with Sander7, but they aren't likely
   to be that "difficult".

F) The Interface input is easily extensible to include additional
   variables in more recent versions of code by using the "Set" command.

   set new_variable_name = value

   will add a namelist definition for new_variable_name and give it the
   supplied value. This can be used to extend the interface front end
   if you add new variables.
