[molpro-user] insufficient memory available

Dear Marcela,

There are two ways to specify Molpro memory:

(1) command line flag -m

(2) memory card in Molpro input file
memory, 100, m

If neither is specified, then Molpro will use the default memory size 
(8000000 words).

One can check how much memory is used by looking at

Variable memory set to    *** words

in Molpro output.

Here is the summary about the memory settings:


Best wishes,
