I want to check PME energies directly with AMBER program,such as sander
I do find some differences.
DO you know how does it come?
 The simulated system is not interested, just want to compare PME.
Here is what Tom Darden wrote to me:

Dear Yuguang
I have an idea what may be the reason. I don't know for sure what is the
implementation of pme in gromacs. I sent them the spme code. This is
essentially what was in the original amber implementation. Since then I
have modified the B-spline weight term. This modification gives somewhat
more accurate energies but about the same accuracy for forces.
