I know that its hard maintain a manual. I was going through the dump command and read_dump command in lammps and I found a few typos.
In the dump command doc pages:
__*custom* of__ *custom/mpiio* args = list of atom attributes should be custom or custom/mpiio In the read_dump doc pages: The *native* format is for native LAMMPS dump files, written with a **"dump atom".html** the html should not appear. I request the developers to correct this. Thanks again for your help. Arun
