Hi, Juan,
Thanks for the answer, but the question was on the Autodock4, not Autodock
Autdock Vina and Autodock4 are based on different algorithms and I'm
interested in autodock4 currently.
Any information concerning the usage of  the parallel OpenMP implementation
of  autodock4 (autodock4.omp) would be greatly appreciated.
