Subject: AMBER: mmpbsa INSTRNG error?

Dear Amber users;

     I'm trying to perform an MMPBSA calculation using the
script. The ionic strength is set to 50 mM in my input script, yet the file produced by the script writes:

istrng = 0,

      After tracking this down it comes down to lines 395 to 400 in the file:

   if(exists $r_del->{"SALT"}){
      $istrng = $r_del->{"SALT"};
     $istrng = 0.0;
It never finds a "SALT" key, so istrng is always 0. By looking into the file, it seems like the key should be "ISTRNG" instead of
"SALT". So, if I rewrite this, I get what I think is the desired input in
the file. Is this correct? or is the orignal code correct?
