[molpro-user] How to specify Dunning SV & SVP Default Basis?

the dunning_sv and dunning_svp are indeed in the library (as well as  
dunning_svp+) but just not recognized as possible default basis sets.   
As far as I know the easiest
way then to use them is like the following:


(note the dash and not underscore in the alias)
See the files dunning_svp.libmol, dunning_sv.libmol, and  
dunning_svp_plus.libmol in  the /lib molpro directory.  Note that the  
DZ and DZP basis sets you refer to are
in the files dunning.libmol, while there are other versions of these  
in dunning_dz.libmol and dunning_dzp.libmol.
