Because MOPAC does not unambiguously announce the optimized structure, Open Babel 2.3.2 extracts the initial structure from its cartesian translation. The actual structure appears ~50 lines below a "GEOMETRY OPTIMISED" statement which precedes energy results.

The optimized structure may be in either MOPAC cartesian or MOPAC Z-matrix format.

The MOPACFormat::ReadMolecule(...) method needs a rewrite to handle this.

Discussion

  • Sorry for the delay. Can you post an example file or two (or e-mail me)? Thanks!

  • This should now be fixed. There was a change in MOPAC that required this update.
