Subject: AMBER: Ideal bonds and angles

Hi all,

At the end of a minimization run, the output gives a summary where it is
stated that:

RMS deviation from ideal bonds: xyz
RMS deviation from ideal angles: abc

I assume that the RMS is done with the "ideal" configuration as a
reference. What is the "ideal" configuration in this case? Is it
possible to set this to any configuration I want?
