How do I use formchk to convert my Gaussian checkpoint files into formatted checkpoint files?

The formchk utility converts the data in a Gaussian checkpoint file into a formatted for suitable for input into a variety of visualization software. The following command will produce the formatted checkpoint file filename.fchk from the checkpoint file filename.chk:

  $ formchk filename.chk filename.fchk

For more, see the formchk utility page in the online Gaussian user reference.
