All the provided scripts such as lj_liquid.tcl use the Espresso-script
from the object-directory, which includes the mpi call. Per default, a
script runs on 2 processors, as you have realized. You have two

- the scripts accept a parameter which is the number of processors, so
"./lj_liquid.tcl 16" will run on 16 processors.
- you can not use this magic, by running Espresso_bin as interpreter:
"mpirun -np 16 obj-????/Espresso_bin lj_liquid.tcl", where obj-??? denotes
the directory where Espresso was compiled to. It always starts with obj-,
and if you didn't compile on different architectures, yet, there should be
just one in your Espresso source directory.
