I wanted to know if vmd can create a pdb file with atom numbering. i.e. for
example C1, H1..and not as C H N ...

Actually, I am dealing with a long polymer chain, polyethylene (40000 Mw)
and to define the residues I need to have atoms numberings so that the
program recognizes the atoms. Normally softwares that generate structure
file do not have atoms numbered and to do this by hand is very tedious for
big molecules.

Please guide me what is the best approach to make such a big molecule.
