Hey Teo,

Thanks for the push in the right direction. I did see that before but
noticed that one has to define a MOLECULE number to use the restraints
within COLLECTIVE which in turn requires reading a pdb file (I think).
I know I can convert my xyz file into a pdb but I am just curious if
there is a way to do it using the xyz file.
