For instance: puts $ofile "if \{1} \{"

Should be: puts $ofile "if \{1\} \{"

Hey All,

Just following up with this thread, I too am curious as to why this script won't work.

Hello all,

I have been trying to write a script for Tcl to automate the preparation of MD configuration files. When I test the script directly in the VMD Tk console, everything runs as expected. However, when I try and source the script using the same code, I receive an error message.

The script is attached. This is the error I receive when sourcing:

vmd > source test.tcl
wrong # args: should be "foreach varList list ?varList list ...? command"
