restart2data FYI

Just some FYI,

I ran a lammps job using the latest windows executable on a windows box that created a couple binary restarts, then tried unsuccessfully to use the restart2data that came with the 3Oct10 lammps version to convert the binaries to data files on another machine (cygwin).

I got the error message, “invalid flag in header section of restart file”.

Downloading and using the restart2data from the 5Mar12 lammps distribution solved the problem.


any additional guidance welcomed,


I would advise to always use the restart2data that
is in the version of LAMMPS that is producing
the restart file.
