Moldy is a general-purpose molecular dynamics simulation program. It is sufficiently flexible that it ought to be useful for a wide range of simulation calculations of atomic, ionic and molecular systems. The system is specified at run time with a description file so there is no need to recompile when changing systems. The program handles much more of the bookkeeping than is traditionally done, keeping track of consistency of parameters, restart files, output trajectories and so forth. Sizing of arrays limits are all handled automatically.http://www.earth.ox.ac.uk/~keith/moldy.htmlVersion 2.16: GPL
