Hi Deb,

When using bincoordinates, you still have to include a "coordinates" statement
and provide a PDB file. The coordinates in it will be ignored.

If you still have to convert your binary file, load it in VMD (load a PSF file
first). Then select the molecule and use the "save coordinates" dialog.

By the way, comments like "it did not work" are not precise enough - in most
cases - for people to understand your problem. When you report something that
went wrong, it is advisable to quote whatever error message you got.
