Hi  Valentin

It might be handy to have a look at my gromacs sheets
(http://md.chem.rug.nl/~groenhof/blocks.html) while reading this.....

In topology.h the topology is defined and one part of it is the
charges groups:

top struct: (include/types/topology.h)

blocks[ebNR] (ebNR is the number of diffent blocks used in gmx)

number ebCGS (see gmxlib/names.c) of this block array is the
chargegroup block.

Charge groups is a block (block.h).

block struct: (include/types/block.h)

So charge group i contains the atoms a[index[i]] until
a[index[i+1]]. The elements of a[] are the atomnumbers of these

I hope I helped you a bit in the right direction,
