MOPAC Manual (Seventh Edition)
Dr James J. P. Stewart
PUBLIC DOMAIN COPY (NOT SUITABLE FOR PRODUCTION WORK)

This document is intended for use by developers of semiempirical programs and software. It is not intended for use as a guide to MOPAC.

All the new functionalities which have been donated to the MOPAC project during the period 1989-1993 are included in the program. Only minimal checking has been done to ensure conformance with the donors' wishes. As a result, this program should not be used to judge the quality of programming of the donors. This version of MOPAC-7 is not supported, and no attempt has been made to ensure reliable performance.

This program and documentation have been placed entirely in the public domain, and can be used by anyone for any purpose. To help developers, the donated code is packaged into files, each file representing one donation.

In addition, some notes have been added to the Manual. These may be useful in understanding the donations.

If you want to use MOPAC-7 for production work, you should get the copyrighted copy from the Quantum Chemistry Program Exchange. That copy has been carefully written, and allows the donors' contributions to be used in a full, production-quality program.
