Dear all,

I have some problems opening a log file from a GAMESS calculation. I have
conducted a NBO calculation by adding this line in the input file:
$NBO AONBO=P plot file=/home/sassy/gamess/rem499/output $END
Although it generated the output file for the NBOView, I cannot use that
program as it crashes. So I thought I might try jmol. However, even simple
opening the file gives me that error:
Skript FEHLER: Error reading file at line 132091:
 480. Li31 (s)   -7.3005
1.8135 -9.4655 -0.5137 -5.1614-23.4537-20.3894-37.6613

The line in question from the logfile is:
480. Li31 (s)   -0.0752  0.0107  0.0445  0.0230 -0.1055 -0.0222  0.0608
(in one line).

I am somewho stuck. I only have 75 atoms so that should not be a problem (I
would have thought?).
Could somebody point me in the right direction?

All the best from Glasgow!
