       gmx angle computes the angle distribution for a number of angles or dihedrals.

       With  option  -ov,  you  can  plot the average angle of a group of angles as a function of
       time. With the -all option, the first graph is the average and the rest are the individual

       With  the  -of option, gmx angle also calculates the fraction of trans dihedrals (only for
       dihedrals) as function of time, but this is probably only fun for a select few.

       With option -oc, a dihedral correlation function is calculated.

       It should be noted that the index file must contain  atom  triplets  for  angles  or  atom
       quadruplets for dihedrals.  If this is not the case, the program will crash.

       With  option  -or, a trajectory file is dumped containing cos and sin of selected dihedral
       angles, which subsequently can be used as input for a principal components analysis  using
       gmx covar.

       Option  -ot  plots  when transitions occur between dihedral rotamers of multiplicity 3 and
       -oh records a histogram  of  the  times  between  such  transitions,  assuming  the  input
       trajectory frames are equally spaced in time.
