Thanks David. 2 fold questions in response to that:
1) unless i am missing something, there's no torsion constraints available 
(just position, angle constraints) in gromacs
2) i am trying to improve force field torsion parameters to suit my molecule 
better, so does that count as force field optimization? just out of 
curiocity, is there an example for using the ffscan function?

thank you.
