I need to load a large pdb file in VMD. when I try it VMD gives the
following error:

MolAtom xxxx: Exceeded maximum number of bonds

I have learned that the VMD provides space for 8 bonds per atom. This limit
is coded into the program as a constant, but by a simple recompile, it can
be increased to an arbitrary number.

Can somebody please recompile VMD with a higher limit say 50 or so..
I am using windows 7 32 bit OS.

Thanking you in advance..
