Dear Gromacs developers,
I am trying to hack Gromacs to include a new 4-body short-ranged potential
which Gromacs has not implemented yet. My strategy is to define the
potential as a new dihedral types. I will have 2 input parameters, so I
expected that I will do something very similar to what Gromacs does for
improper dihedral angle. Therefore by grepping for F_IDIHS and
eNR_IMPROPER, I think I need to modify the following files:

However, when I run test, I get the following fatal error at grompp step:
"Incorrect number of parameters - found 2, expected 32621 or -26576307 for.

I think there is something wrong related to toppush.c but I am really
clueless. The file is too complicated for me to understand. In your
opinion, what is wrong with my modification? Besides the following file, is
there any other files which I need to modify also?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,

*Lan Hoa*
