Re: AMBER: nmode entropy calculations in MMPBSA

I noticed this before. I think it is just a glitch in the perl script
which pulls values
from the output files. line 382
This matches two lines from a typical nmode output, only the second
of which
is the rotational entropy you want. Fortunately, the routine that
reads in the
*all.out file ignores all but the last rotational entry, so I think
it doesn't matter.
