Dear All,

I am starting to use amber03 force field, but I have found something very
strange for proper angle dihedral.

On the basis of definition of proper dihedral function in AMBER and GROMACS
manual I aspect that the following conversion from amber to gromacs:

k_n(GROMACS)=4.18/k V_n (AMBER)

where n= multiplicity.

If I compare ffbonded.itp file in ffamber03 folder and the parameter
reported in amber I find something very strange and I do not understand
what it is right:

AMBER:   X   C    CN    X
