       gmx-confrms - Fit two structures and calculates the RMSD


          gmx confrms [-f1 [<.tpr/.gro/...>]] [-f2 [<.gro/.g96/...>]]
                      [-n1 [<.ndx>]] [-n2 [<.ndx>]] [-o [<.gro/.g96/...>]]
                      [-no [<.ndx>]] [-[no]w] [-[no]one] [-[no]mw] [-[no]pbc]
                      [-[no]fit] [-[no]name] [-[no]label] [-[no]bfac]


       gmx  confrms  computes  the  root  mean  square  deviation  (RMSD) of two structures after
       least-squares fitting the second structure on the first one.  The two  structures  do  NOT
       need  to have the same number of atoms, only the two index groups used for the fit need to
       be identical.  With -name only matching atom names from the selected groups will  be  used
       for the fit and RMSD calculation. This can be useful when comparing mutants of a protein.

       The superimposed structures are written to file. In a .pdb file the two structures will be
       written as separate models (use rasmol -nmrpdb). Also in a .pdb file, B-factors calculated
       from the atomic MSD values can be written with -bfac.
