Dear all,

I got an error message when I tried to use sander,

$AMBERHOME/exe/sander -O -i -o 1iyt_vac_init_min.out -c
1iyt_vac.inpcrd -p 1iyt_vac.prmtop -r 1iyt_vac_init_min.rst

then it said:

namelist read: no end record
apparent state: unit 5 named
last format: namelist io
Unit 5 is a sequenctial formatted external file
***Execution Terminated (120)***

I am new user, I followed the instruction from the tutorial, and then I used
the files from the tutorial, the same error message came out. I noticed that
nobody has mentioned this error before.

this is the input file

polyA-polyT 10-mer: initial minimisation prior to MD
  imin = 1,
  maxcyc = 500,
  ncyc = 250,
  ntb = 0,
  igb = 0,
  cut = 12 (I tried both with "," and without it here, and it is the same
 /does anyone have any idea about this?Thanks!RZ
