Dear Miss or Mister,

I'm using Amber 10. And I've tried to run an equilibration process. Previously I used Amber 8, so I've decided to used the old input file. Amber8 is working with this input file, but Amber 10 give me the following mistake: error in reading namelist cntrl. Below is my output file. And I've read the Amber10 manual and check all spell in my input file. I still don't know what is wrong. May you help me to solve this question.
