Subject: AMBER: Namelists in input files

Dear Amber users/developers,

I'm writing a fortran program to generate input files for sander using
namelists. When a fortran program prints a namelist to a file it does so
in upper case, which is fine because the reading of a namelist is
case-insensitive. However, Amber's nmlsrc subroutine, which looks in
input files for namelists, is case sensitive and so I receive errors
like 'Could not find cntrl namelist' when in fact it is present under
the name &CNTRL.

Is there likely to be a patch released to correct this?
