That's misspelled too. Underscores are significant. You have to be
literal when dealing with computers.

The problems come when the force from normal angle and dihedral
functions aren't numerically stable when there are 3 collinear atoms.
The way to avoid this is to have one of those atoms "virtual". Forces on
it get projected onto the real atoms from which it is defined, the
integration of forces proceeds only on the real atoms, and the position
of the virtual site gets reconstructed later. So, which type do you
think will work best here?

The real atoms that form the virtual site. The number and order depends
on the type of virtual site. Which atom is which is covered back in 4.7
You need to read that together with 5.2.2, like I said several emails ago.

That's situation-dependent. Here, you want to pick a position along the
line that will lead to the three atoms being a sensible distance apart.

No, I don't have one. Your example above will construct atom 5 from 1
and 2 75% of the way along the line from 1 to 2, per Figure 4.16 and
