Restart File

In the intervals specified in the control file, EGO writes a restart file called restart.lis to the directory containing the lis-files. A restart file contains all the information necessary to continue the calculation at the current integration step in the event of a subsequent interruption. At startup, EGO automatically looks for a restart file in the lis-file directory and continues the calculation from that point rather than starting over. If you have a restart file in your lis-file directory, but you don't want to use it, you have to rename the restart file, e.g., by typing
mv restart.lis restart.sav
or you specify in ctl.lis a restart-file that does not exist. See also Section 4.1.
