Re: how to have large coordinate values in the "coordinates PDB" file

I think you can write the values in a .coor file (the format is called
"namdbin" by molfile), and have it read by NAMD through binCoordinates. At
that point, it doesn't matter what values are in the PDB file, because they
will be overridden.
