Individual workstations use the same version of NAMD as workstation
networks, but running NAMD is much easier. You may launch any number
of namd2 processes on the local machine (for best performance lauch
one process per processor) using the
++local option via:
charmrun namd2 ++local +p<procs> <configfile>
There is no longer any need to be able to
rsh localhost or to
create a nodelist file containing the single host localhost.
Intel and Alpha processors produce binary files (restart and DCD
files) which must be
byte-swapped to be read on other platforms.
NAMD and VMD now handle this conversion automatically for most files.
