csg_density - Part of the VOTCA package




Calculates the mass density distribution along a box axis or radial density profile from reference point
Please visit the program site at __http://www.votca.org__.


Allowed options:
-h [ --help ]
display this help and exit
-v [ --verbose ]
be loud and noisy
--top arg
atomistic topology file
Mapping options:
--cg arg
[OPTIONAL] coarse graining mapping and bond definitions (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::
--axis arg (=r)
[x|y|z|r] density axis (r=spherical)
--step arg (=0.01)
spacing of density
--block-length arg
write blocks of this length, the averages are cleared after every write
--out arg
Output file
--rmax arg
rmax (default for [r] =min of all box vectors/2, else l )
--scale arg (=1)
scale factor for the density
--molname arg (=*)
--filter arg (=*)
filter bead names
--ref arg
reference zero point
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
