Hi all,

Recently I have been getting some direct emails in relation to the
modifications I made to the perl scripts for MM-PBSA in relation to
the error I was getting for the "No data for 0+0 PB ELRAELE 0" error.
I did get some feedback from Dr Gohlke's lab stating that
modifications I made are acceptable.

Also in their response it was mentioned that they would make some
changes to the examples and the mm_pbsa_statistics script as soon as
possible to clear up these issues. I am not sure if this is happening
but I thought I would let everyone know that they can edit the files
themselves and get MM-PBSA in AMBER 10 to run properly.
