RE: CCL:problem with mol2topdb script

 I have had this problem too when I installed Autodock 3.05 on my system (SGI
 Irix v6.5).  The "gawk" error message, you have to edit the
 script so that it calls "awk" instead of "gawk".  This can
 be done with the
 text editor vi or jot.  As for the files being empty, it doesnt say this in
 the Autodock manual, but you have to specify an output filename for the files.
 An example would be:
 % mol2topdbq 1L5G.mol2 > 1L5G.pdbq
 I would also recommend using AutodockTools (ADT) to prepare your files for
 docking, as it is much easier than using the scripts.  ADT can be interesting
 to set up, but I have got it to work on my SGI.
 Hope this helps,
