ADL: Reg metal ligands

I think the easiest is to add the data to the *.dat files in the autodock source code directory. The file names are:
- AD4.1_bound.dat
- AD4.1_compact.dat  
- AD4.1_extended.dat  
- AD4_parameters.dat  
- AD4_PARM99.dat
A subsequent recompile of the code will regenerate the "default_parameters.h" file and integrate the parameters into the executable (both for autodock and autogrid). More information about this works can be found in the file:

	src/autodock/README (section "Configuration notes")

Alternatively you can specify a file with parameters on the command line with the "-p" flag, e.g.

	autodock -p <DOCKPARMFILE>

As to what values to include in the parameter files that is a different story. See:
I have also found an example of a parameter set with many metal atoms at:
However, I have no idea how good these parameters are. 

Best wishes,
