Thank you very much for this David

It does not resolve the Apple CLANG compiler issues with CPPTRAJ, I have not had a chance to pursue the bug checking with cpptraj further though I’ll make an effort as soon as I have time.

I did however manage to compile without error using the GCC compilers from homebrew, this require you to link the correct compilers since Homebrew uses gcc-8/g++-8/c++-8, hence reverting to system gcc/g++/c++ = clang on Mac.:

    ln -s /usr/local/bin/gcc-8 /usr/local/bin/gcc
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/g++-8 /usr/local/bin/g++
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/c++-8 /usr/local/bin/c++
    ./configure -macAccelerate gnu
    make install
    Installation of AmberTools18 serial is complete at Tue Oct 16 12:42:35 CEST 2018

This seems to have worked, I only compiled and walked away since I’m teaching and have not yet managed to test the installation.

Anyway, thank you for all help and efforts so far.

Best regards
// Gustaf
