[gmx-users] grompp very slow generating .tpr when excluded bonded neighbours is large

No, I have separate index groups for each of the atom types.
Wouldn't that still have the pair of atoms that are located on the
same molecule, contributing to the RDF?
Molecule is like this:
Index file would be something like this:
[ C1 ]
1 39 77 .....
[ C38 ]
38 76 114 ....
So doesn't it still include these atom pairs to generate the RDF? Atom
pair list below. From the RDFs that are generating using this method,
it appears it does as there is a massive peak around the intra-atomic
1-38, 1-76, 1-114 ..... 39-38, 39-76, 39-114 ....
First and fifth pair in this list are atoms that are contained within
the same molecule.
Wouldn't be surprised if I am missing something simple here .....
