Format of Keywords and Comments

TURBOMOLE input is keyword-directed. Keywords start with a '$', e.g. $title. Comments may be given after $dummy, or by a line starting with #; these lines are ignored by TURBOMOLE. Blank lines are also ignored. Keywords may be in any order unless stated otherwise below.

The sample inputs given below should help to give an idea how the keywords are to be used. They are sorted according to program. Complete control files are provided in Chapter 16. An alphabetical list of all keywords is given in the index.
