Subject: vmd-l: mol options first and last

Hello VMD users:
I am looking for help with the mol new options of first and last as shown
mol new {../dos.lmptraj} first 0 last 3000 step 6 type lammpstrj

The trajectory has >3000 snapshots. The only option that seems to work is
"waitfor all" or "wailfor xxx" works fine. But I can make no sense of the
first and last options. The command returns a very wrong # of snapshots
that should be loaded (it returns 3 instead of 500). I tried changing the
first and last numbers so that they corresponded to the lammps frame labels
in the trajectory file, but that did not work either.

Anyone have any ideas?
