The "ff10" files currently implement the ff99SB protein force field and the
ff99bsc0 force field for DNA/RNA. They use atom and residue names from
version 3 of the pdb.

The only reason they are there is that some nucleic acid routines in NAB
need the atom and residue names to match those of PDB version 3; hence ff10
is called internally by some NAB routines. General users should not use
these directly, and they may change with future releases.
