Re: [AMBER] Question on Paramfit QM File

Hi Justin,

If you send me your Gaussian output file and error messages from Paramfit,
I can investigate more.
It's very possible the format of the output has changed over the years in a
way that breaks the parser.
The fastest solution is to extract the energies yourself using grep or
similar, as described in the tutorial:

Hope this helps,
