A description is provided for a molecular dynamics code that simulates the dynamics of long chain molecules tethered to a smooth surface. The operation of the code is discussed from the point of view of the user. The structure of the input files is described and a discussion on how to change the state of the system (temperature and density/molecule) is provided. The steps needed to change the model are listed. Properties derived from some simulations are provided. A listing of the source code is included in an appendix.
