taking fewer atoms by ignoring the hydrogens is a good advice. Thanks a
I was wondering if a more appropriate error message could be generated
before the program messes around in the memory. The program acts as if
it could handle the system size and then crashes with a Segmentation
fault meaning it does not properly handle its memory.
Nonetheless thanks again for the hydrogen advice. Had'nt really thought
about it before.
