Cadpac Notes

Ab initio molecular orbital program. Examples of input files are in /usr/local/cadpac
rcadpac filename

Use the mm2cad and the c2mm commands to convert from MacroModel format to Cadpac format. Cadpac is very expensive in computer time, so you must use a local directory.

More information on CADPAC is available from its authors. Documentation is also available on-line.

If you want to use an element whose basis set is not included in the program, you can obtain basis sets over the web:
Index of Basis Sets
( is the European mirror site - probably faster if you are in the UK )
