csg_sphericalorder [--help]


!! EXPERIMENTAL !! Calculate spherical order parameter.
Needs non-spherical beads in mapping.


Allowed options:

-h [ --help ] display this help and exit
--verbose be loud and noisy
--verbose1 be very loud and noisy
-v [ --verbose2 ] be extremly loud and noisy
--top arg atomistic topology file
--filter arg (=*) filter molecule names
--radialcut arg (=0) radial cutoff: distance from center where bead is
--minrad arg (=0) minimal distance a parcle has to be apart from center
to be considerd
--refmol arg Reference molecule
--rbinw arg (=0) Do multiple r_bins multiple histograms

Mapping options:

--cg arg coarse graining mapping and bond definitions
--map-ignore arg list of molecules to ignore separated by ;
--no-map disable mapping and act on original trajectory

Trajectory options:

--trj arg atomistic trajectory file
--begin arg (=0) skip frames before this time (only works for
Gromacs files)
--first-frame arg (=0) start with this frame
--nframes arg process the given number of frames
