Well, it will, because pdb2gmx builds topologies that grompp can parse
into input for mdrun.

Have a look at all the possibilities GROMACS already knows about in
chapter 4, and consider also the use of table-lookups for two-body
functions (manual 6.7.2). IIRC many-bodied functions won't work yet.


Hey Mark,
       Thanks very much for your benevolence. Another question, How can I
set up a new functions? Where should they be located? What do you mean when
you talk about "table-lookups  for two-body functions"? Where should the
lookups take place?
       When I use "man mdrun" to find a "-table" option for table-lookup, it
obviously indicates an input file **.xvg, What can **.xvg file do? How
should it be created? What is the content in it?
       Thank a lot and thanks in advance!
