Forgot about this slice of the problem. You are right now, so, or a .ndx
file, or .tpr files.  ;)  Or read both residue counting and molecule
cou8nting from the .pdb file.  ;)

Ops, now I've got your idea! I was thinking too much about trjconv way of
working instead of editconf one! Sorry!

On this way, yes, editconf becomes a really good idea, side-by-side with
reading the .tpr one. But, of course, and easier to implement one.

Thanks a lot for all information and for all your time. I'll start to look
into  the sources you mentioned before and try to properly find out how to
deal with those  problems properly.  ;)

Thanks a lot again for all your time,

Sincerally yours,
