# this is just for logging
                     LOG_PRINT_KEY T
                     FILENAME wfn_history
# you don't need backup_copies if you use a proper  
                     BACKUP_COPIES 0
# this subsection is self-explicative
                         MD 1
                         QS_SCF 0
                     &END EACH
# this asks to write the restart file once the iteration cycle is  
identified as the last one (converged WFN)
                     ADD_LAST NUMERIC
# this will give a full set of restart files labelled according the  
MD step.
                     COMMON_ITERATION_LEVEL 1
                 &END RESTART_HISTORY
# you don't need the restart_history
                 &RESTART_HISTORY OFF
             &END PRINT
