CCL: Coupled Cluster and MP4 in peptides

 Sent to CCL by: "Kalju Kahn" [kalju{:}]
 Hi Pablo,
 You may also want to consider that only few programs implement analytical
 gradients for methods fancier than MP2.  The numerical optimization of
 large flexible systems can be *very* time consuming.
 As for single point jobs, get as much memory as you can ... the speed of
 the transformation step in such large systems scales favorably with
 available memory as fewer passes are needed.
