Hi Rui,

When you have a double precision binary, the header of the program will
add (double precision) to the name when you run it, e.g.:

                     :-)  mdrun (double precision) (-:

In addition, for every file you open the code will print if the file
was written in single or double precision - that's what you're seeing in
your example.
