Hello charmm users,

I have an issue when using loop in C42B1 version of Charmm. An example is like following:
* test loop
* 2020/5/12
set i = 1
label loop
incr i by 1
if @i .lt. 10 then goto loop

Program just stopped after comparing two numbers as shown below. The error message printed forrtl: Illegal seek
forrtl: severe (20): REWIND error, unit 5, file /proc/131434/fd/0.
. But, if I remove 'label loop' and change the input to
set i = 1
if @i .lt. 10 then incr i by 1
then no issue occured. So, problem problem probably lies in loop structrue.

I'm using em64t_M of charmm. The error occurs no matter what number of processors I use. I have no idea why it happens.

CHARMM> set i = 1
Parameter: I <- "1"

CHARMM> label loop

CHARMM> incr i by 1

CHARMM> if @i .LT. 10 then goto loop
Parameter: I -> "2"
Comparing "2" and "10".
IF test evaluated as true. Performing command

You cannot use input redirect ("<") with MPI and CHARMM goto statements. The correct way to run charmm is to use the "-i" flag instead:
(mpirun -np 2) charmm -i input_file.inp
