Subject: AMBER: nmanal problem

Dear All,
  I am attempting to use nmanal from AMBER 7. I am using old style parm files
from sander 5.
  I get the error message below:-

fmt: read unexpected character
apparent state: unit 20 named prmtop
last format: (5E16.8)
lately reading sequential formatted external IO

I have checked my parm file and it is correct in format.

I have noticed a mail in the reflector archive which cites the same problem
that has been unanswered. Is this a well known problem?

Also I can't find a test for nmanal in the AMBER 7 release is this correct.

Thankyou in advance
