[lammps-users] xmovie does not like new dump custom output

I found that xmovie does not like the new dump custom output and the problem is that the line
ITEM: ATOMS
cannot contain any additional non-space characters after the word ATOMS. The new dump custom adds the title of the columns after ATOMS. I was able to edit the file "dump_custom.cpp" and change the line
fprintf(fp,"ITEM: ATOMS %s\n", columns);
to the following
fprintf(fp,"ITEM: ATOMS\n");
and then recompile to allow xmovie to work as usual.

chuck,

it would be better to keep the dump format as is and
teach xmovie to read the new format. that change was
made for a very good reason. if you need help with
that, i can take a look.
