Re: icharg command not read

Alex Granovsky

Dear Remi,

the problem is with your input file, more precisely, with your
$contrl group.

The rules are as follows. Each input group should start at the second
position in a line. Input lines longer than 80 symbols are not
allowed. Input group can span several lines, and there can be several
input group with the same name but different contents.

With your original input file, the $contrl group is simply ignored as
it is treated as a comment by input parser.

The correct syntax could be:

   MAXIT=500 ICHARG=+1 MULT=1   

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
