Re: AMBER: Compiling single programs

At risk of sounding like a broken record, computing charges for a WHOLE
molecule at once is quite simply a VERY bad idea !

Charges are only a part of the equation, one then needs to go and adjust
torsions (assuming one has bonds, angles, etc ok) to full QM scans. For
a large molecule, this is close to impossible, AND might be wrong to
assume that one can scan one torsion at a time only.

So, please follow recognized standards and do small molecules, which
then can be put together.

As for compiling individual programs, there should be a makefile inside
EACH part of amber.
As long as you have a good config.h unser /scr, it should work out.

is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable
