Dear VMD users,

I noticed that VMD cannot properly read the rst7 created by CPPTRAJ. The
reason for this appears to be the formatting of the second line (see
below). The number "0.0000000E+00" represents the time in "ps". Removing
it makes the file readable by VMD with the rst7 file format.

*** first 2 lines of rst7 file created by CPPTRAJ ***
Cpptraj Generated Restart
226253 0.0000000E+00

It could be nice if the plugin could be modified to read these files

Best wishes
