Re^3: $RSTART related question

Alex Granovsky

Dear Stepan,

these two files are identical. Restart information is considered as
very important hence Firefly generates two copy of of restart files
when idump=2. You can use any of these files. If you set idump=1 then
a single restart file (RESTART) will be generated.

Kind regards,
Alex Granovsky
