Re: NAMD restarts binary files

I consulted the user guide and I should have used:

coordinates <PDB FILE>
bincoordinates <COOR FILE NAME>

It works now.

I just wanted to confirm though that in the guide it says that if bincoordinates and coordinates is specified that the coordinates are ignored. I hope that is the case - b/c NAMD would not start up if coordinates as the binary coordinate file. As long as the binary coordinates are being used I am happy.

  I am trying to restart a simulation.
  I have the coor, vel and xsc files that were generated, however they are in binary format.
  Does this pose a problem when restarting?
  When I try to restart I get the following error:

  FATAL ERROR: Line too long in pdbfile RESTARTS/1hcl_solvate_restart.3000000.coor
