hehe these are molecular modelling programs that are usually run on a
Cray or at least an RS6k when researchers are going for accuracy and
the data are intended for publication, to give you an indication of
the calculating power. I plan to use the lowest and most approximate
options in order to run it on my PC since I neither need accuracy nor
do I intend to publish.
Well you were right about dos mode, but as I said , I tried dos mode
before. The problem was that I made a custom batch file just for the
unprocessed input files and I made the most pathetic mistake: -O3 was
-o3 in my bat file, so I had sucessively overwritten unoptimized
object files named "3" being produced! Once I made the correction and
ran it in dos mode again, it worked. Thanks and sorry for wasting your
