ADL: charged ligands/Gasteiger?

Hello, Ruth,

I am trying to use to create a .pdbqt file from a .pdb file that came out of a screening with DOCK. It seems to work, in the sense that I get a file with the various torsion directives, as expected from a pdbqt file.

What would be ideal is that the Gasteiger charge generation could take into account the total charge, but I don't see any option that allows me to tell the total charge. Absent that possibility, does read the charges from a pdb file? That file has charges in the temperature factor column and also a record for the total charge.

Sorry for pestering you with my wishes.
