This means that besides the bond-length potential, you also want to have
a bond-angle potential. This is a very common case. Note, that a
bond-angle potential is a three-body potential as opposed to a
bond-length two body potential!
To set this up, you will have to use the part command for the various
particles, as you can read in the User's Guide, sec. 5.3.5.

You have to use the "part" command. "polymer" will always generate new
