Dr. Case, Thankyou for the reply. I am trying to get it out but have found one more thing.

(1) I load leaprc.ff03 in tleap
(2) I do "desc ff03"

From the output:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.00 N=4 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.06 N=3 P0= 0.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.00 N=4 P0= 0.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.07 N=2 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.78 N=1 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.23 N=3 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.88 N=2 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:
C - N - CT - CT Kp= 0.35 N=1 P0= 180.00 Order: 0123 Desc:

i.e. there are 8 terms for C -N -CT-CT but from the frcmod file, there should be only 4 of them corresponding to:

CT-CT-N -C 1 0.0000 180.0 -4.
C -N -CT-CT 1 0.2270 180.00 -3.
C -N -CT-CT 1 0.8836 180.00 -2.
C -N -CT-CT 1 0.3537 180.00 1.

-- It so happens that the folloing 4 dihedrals are also treated as C -N -CT-CT. Is it because CT-CT-N-C has -4?
CT-CT-C -N 1 0.0560 0.00 -3.
CT-CT-C -N 1 0.0000 0.0 -4.
CT-CT-C -N 1 0.0657 180.00 -2.
CT-CT-C -N 1 0.7784 180.00 1.

Best Regards,
Yen

This is to make sure that the non-zero value in parm99.dat for this torsion
is not used.
