## Example: A Conditional Test

This example either divides or multiplies the symbol $1 by a factor of two, depending on the value of the NOE energy ($NOE). In the first case, 40 steps of minimization are carried out, whereas in the latter case, 100 steps of minimization are carried out. Note that the indentation is arbitrary but can make the input file more readable.if ($NOE > 10.0) then evaluate ($1=$1/2.0) minimize powell nstep=40 end else evaluate ($1=$1*2.0) minimize powell nstep=100 end end if
