Subject: Re: AMBER: mm-pbsa multiple trajectory approach?

A nice thing I recall about the mm-pbsa script in the AMBER suite is that
it is a very transparently written PERL script. So, you should feel
comfortable opening the file, and making small changes.

I am not in front of our source now - but I recall from a few years ago
that you could ask for output on "complex" or "receptor" only - and it
would give output. Otherwise, if it is not that easy, I don't think the
PERL script modifications are going to be very great for you.

And, if the response above makes no sense whatsoever in the context of
your version of AMBER, accept my apologies in advance!
