Hi Zahra,

Sometimes the experts might argue about how to define the ZAMS.  It depends
somewhat on the mass you are interested in.  However, One good test is the
first time that the luminosity from nuclear burning is > 99% of the total
luminosity.  Bill has kindly provided a check for this controls inlist:

         abs_diff_lg_LH_lg_Ls_limit = -1
            ! stop when abs(lg_LH - lg_Ls) <= abs_diff_LH_Lsurf_limit
            ! can be useful for deciding when pre-main sequence star has
reached ZAMS
            ! set to negative value to disable

If you set this to 2, you will get the test I described above.

Best wishes,
