csg_stat - Part of the VOTCA package


csg_stat [OPTIONS]

csg_stat [--help]


Calculate all distributions (bonded and non-bonded) specified in options file. Optionally calculates update Eigen::Matrix3d for invere Monte Carlo. This program is called inside the inverse scripts. Unlike csg_boltzmann, big systems can be treated as well as non-bonded interactions can be evaluated.


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

Mapping options:

--cg arg [OPTIONAL] coarse graining mapping and bond
(xml-file). If no file is given, program acts on
original trajectory
--map-ignore arg list of molecules to ignore if mapping is done
separated by ;

Specific options:

--options arg options file for coarse graining
--do-imc write out additional Inverse Monte Carlo data
--include-intra do not exclude intramolecular neighbors
--block-length arg write blocks of this length, the averages are
cleared after every write
--ext arg ( Extension of the output

Threading options:

--nt arg (=1) number of threads

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
