units of E_DENSITY_CUBE

Pablo, thanks for the reply. I am still unclear though ...
I never specify any units in my input file however when I input the
coordinates under

 &SUBSYS
    &CELL
      ABC xx yy zz
      ALPHA_BETA_GAMMA   aa bb gg
      PERIODIC XYZ
    &END CELL
    &COORD
<my coordinates>

they are correctly interpreted as being in A. I know this because the
output file reads:

<my coordinates>
       UNIT angstrom
       SCALED  F
     &END COORD


Therefore, I do not know what units are being used in the cube file. I
can clearly open the cube file in something like VMD and it seems like
things should be in A (bond lengths are what one would expect in A
anyway). However I am unclear about the units of the density.

I am not sure if my email is totally clear, I can try again if it is
not.

Thanks for your help!
