Orbitals sorting with firefly
Hello experienced ffly users and developers,
I have encountered an (insolvable) problem when tried to sort my orbitals with J/IORDER. The details make the letter slightly longer as an average posts but should give the details.
The goal of sorting is to get the sequence of orbitals:
| 32 |  30 | 104 | 123 | 119 | 477 | 475 | orbital_id
|116 | 117 | 118 | 119 | 120 | 121 | 122 | position

Trivial, right? I've started with direct approach:
The input:
\$GUESS KDIAG=0 GUESS=MOREAD NORB=411 ASIS=.F. PRTMO=.T. NORDER=1
JORDER(1)=-32  JORDER(2)=-30  JORDER(3)=-104 JORDER(4)=-122
JORDER(5)=-119 JORDER(6)=-477 JORDER(7)=-475
IORDER(116)=-1  IORDER(117)=-2  IORDER(118)=-3 IORDER(119)=-4
IORDER(120)=-5 IORDER(121)=-6 IORDER(122)=-7
\$END
But...

Hmm, something is wrong... but what was that??? Maybe the J/IORDER scheme doesn't work for nontrivial rearrangements?
If so lets try to order orbitals through IORDER only
The input:

\$GUESS KDIAG=0 GUESS=MOREAD NORB=411 ASIS=.F. PRTMO=.T. NORDER=1
IORDER(116)=-32  IORDER(117)=-30  IORDER(118)=-104
IORDER(119)=123,119,120,121,122
IORDER(121)=-477 IORDER(122)=-475
\$END

Hmm, sorting of the active space is fine but # 120 is really lost. Maybe the order of the instructions shouldn't be mixed?

Nope, I am giving up here because it looks like ffly doesn't care about the order of the sorting instructions which makes the task unsolvable other as enumeration things in 119-477 row. I didn't tried this way because it is not very positive experience. Moreover there should be a limit of ordering instructions which can be easily exceeded if approach the problem in 'ENUMERATION' way.
So maybe one can help with the sorting? Any ideas of how to carry it out?

Thanks,
Alex
