Hi,
  Sorry, but this isn't the script that needs to be edited. You need
to edit the master VMD startup script to disable the 'rlwrap' routines.
It is normally installed as '/usr/local/bin/vmd' on Unix/Linux systems
unless you installed in a custom/non-standard directory. Send me that
script and I'll edit it to disable the 'rlwrap' block we have previously
discussed.

Cheers,
  John Stone
