I am not sure what you mean by "placing the *,dat input file in brackets.
The "stock" amber7 file works for mopac509mn, so my best guess is
that is should work for version 5.10 as well as version 5.09. If so,
would just have a single line:

mopac509mn < $1 > $2

If this fails, we would need to know more about what errors it gives; or maybe
someone on the list who is using the more recent MOPAC from Minnesota can
chime in here.

....hope this helps...dac
