There are two command line options for g_enemat that are overlapping:

    { "-lj", FALSE, etBOOL, {&bLJSR},"extract Lennard-Jones SR energies"},
    { "-lj", FALSE, etBOOL, {&bLJLR},"extract Lennard-Jones LR energies"},

It would also be preferable to standardize the naming of energy terms to more clearly specify SR vs LR. For instance, Buckingham terms are -bhamsr and -bhamlr, which I think is very clear, but then (aside from the above-mentioned identical names for LJ terms), -coul vs. -coulr for Coul-SR vs Coul-LR is not very clear.

What names do you suggest? And should this only be fixed for 4.6 or also for 4.5.6? It might be not such a good idea to change the options name for 4.5.x. So the coul. part I wouldn't change there but the lj might be good to change in also for 4.5.6. Should we use ljlr and ljsr? And for 4.6 coullr and coulsr? But coullr is difficult to read.

I'd say we could target 4.6 rather than 4.5.6. I suspect it's a fairly minor problem, since no one has ever complained on the mailing list (to my knowledge). I happened across it while looking into something else. In any case, I'm a fan of clarity and the mash-up of letters doesn't strike me as particularly attractive, but I'd say perhaps the best options would make use of underscores, i.e. -lj_sr, -lj_lr, -coul_sr, and -coul_lr.
