Dear Amber Users,

While I was trying to understand antechamber step by step, I realized
something. In page # 78 of the Amber Manual, there is an example for
respgen. I think there is a misprint. It is a 2 stage resp fitting method.
By using respgen, the sustiva.respin1 and sustiva.respin2 input files are
created. Later, using resp, someone can do the 2 stage resp fitting. But I
think the 2nd resp fitting command in the manual is wrong. Namely, it
should be

resp -O -i sustiva.respin2 -o sustiva.respout2 -e sustiva.esp -q
        qout_stage1 -t qout_stage2

Meanwhile, I think it might be useful to add the following command to this
example before starting on it.

antechamber -i sustiva.out -fi gout -o -fo ac

Antechamber is a multifunctional program which can perform many file
conversions, and assign atomic charges and atom types. Therefore, before
starting this example, someone needs a file called And because
someone has the Gaussian Output file at hand, he/she needs to convert it
to an Antechamber file format before starting on this example.
