no reading potential file and skip from

Dear lammps experts:
I have four pair_style for my simulation.
I use the pair_style hybrid.
But when I run this program , it shows that it does not read the eam/alloy potential ,but it still run,and skip all the pair style except tersoff.
Is it nature or not?
I dont know what is the mistake on it
Please help me
Thanks a lot

what makes you think that is the case? your quoted output contradicts you.
it shows that there are neighbor lists requested for all pair styles.
it also would be very bad programming to accept keywords and not act on them.
we are testing LAMMPS quite thoroughly and issues like this would show up very quickly in testing and thus would get fixed quickly.

Dear experts:
Because I think that it would be show reading both eam/alloy and tersoff.
Like this:
Reading potential file SiO.tersoff with DATE: 2010-08-16
Reading potential file Co.eam.alloy with DATE: 2010-08-16

And the word “skip” I think that all the pair coeff is replaced to tersoff.
May be I get a wrong for my think.
It is normal for this display ,and all the pair coeff is reading.

Thanks for helping me!!!

Are you are saying that you never see output
indicating the EAM file was read, after its
pair_coeff command was issued? Similar
to the tersoff “Reading …” line?

Try commenting out either the pair coeff eam
or pair_coeff tersoff lines. In both cases you should get
an error.
