Just create a new variable $MULT_VAL in the MAIN PROGRAM section (at the end)
similarly to the $CHR_VAL one

$CHR_VAL = "3";
$MULT_VAL= "Your value";

and introduce this new R.E.D. variable in the GAMESS/Gaussian minimization/MEP

i.e something like for GAMESS
instead of

i.e. something like for Gaussian:
printf JOB1_FILE ("Optimization %s \n\n%s %s \n",$TITLE,$CHR_VAL,$MULT_VAL);
instead of
printf JOB1_FILE ("Optimization %s \n\n%s 1 \n",$TITLE,$CHR_VAL);

Same idea for QM MEP input...

I think it should work.

Regards, Francois

We can introduce a multiplicity variable in R.E.D.-II but I think it is very
simple to do it copying what has been done for the $CHR_VAL one...
