NWChem 6.1.1 (Jan 2013 version on a multi-core shared memory CentOS compute node) creates n input.gridpts.n files of about 1-MB each, where n = the number of processors requested. These remain in the user's job directory after the job completes successfully. Is there a setting in NWChem that will allow these to be automatically deleted? Do they provide any function after the job finishes?

The grid points files can be safely deleted. There is not automated way to have NWChem deleting them at the end of a job yet.
