plotrho.x reads from standard input, i.e. from the terminal 
("unit 5, file stdin": stdin =  standard input) and does not find 
what it expects ("list-directed I/O syntax error", not exactly the 
clearest message one can think of). If you are redirecting the
standard input to a file, as in "plotrho.x < somefile", it might 
also mean that file "somefile" did not contain all the needed data.

you have to give the correct input
