Subject: AMBER: bad crd file

Hello Amber users,


I have carried out a big simulation but unfortunately when I tried to use
the crd files in Carnal I realised that some of them are corrupted. I would
like ask whether there is any way of identifying the bad crd set without
having to run the simulation again. I found in the archives a relevant reply
by Bill Ross : "..try reading the damaged file in carnal & writing it out
unmodified - the last, damaged crdset will be ignored and the new file
should be ok for further operations."


Could you please explain how exactly I can read the crd file in carnal and
write it out unmodified?


Many thanks for the help.


Best wishes,
