Hi Marcella,

Thanks for your information.
I try to plot the FES with the sub-program that is compiled with cp2k. 
However, I got the following error. 
fes.sopt -cp2k -ndim 1 -ndw 1 -file bulk-HNCO-1.restart

FES|  Parsing file:   <bulk-HNCO-1.restart>

At line 185 of file 
Fortran runtime error: Bad real number in item 1 of list input.

Did you use the sub-program in cp2k to calculate FES before? Any suggestion 
for my error would be appreciated.
