       gmx-rmsdist - Calculate atom pair distances averaged with power -2, -3 or -6


          gmx rmsdist [-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>]] [-n [<.ndx>]]
                      [-equiv [<.dat>]] [-o [<.xvg>]] [-rms [<.xpm>]]
                      [-scl [<.xpm>]] [-mean [<.xpm>]] [-nmr3 [<.xpm>]]
                      [-nmr6 [<.xpm>]] [-noe [<.dat>]] [-b <time>] [-e <time>]
                      [-dt <time>] [-[no]w] [-xvg <enum>] [-nlevels <int>]
                      [-max <real>] [-[no]sumh] [-[no]pbc]


       gmx  rmsdist  computes  the  root  mean  square deviation of atom distances, which has the
       advantage that no fit is needed like in standard RMS deviation as  computed  by  gmx  rms.
       The  reference  structure  is  taken  from  the  structure  file.   The  RMSD at time t is
       calculated as the RMS of the differences in distance between atom-pairs in  the  reference
       structure and the structure at time t.

       gmx  rmsdist can also produce matrices of the rms distances, rms distances scaled with the
       mean distance and the mean distances and matrices with NMR averaged distances  (1/r^3  and
       1/r^6  averaging).  Finally,  lists  of  atom pairs with 1/r^3 and 1/r^6 averaged distance
       below the maximum distance (-max,  which  will  default  to  0.6  in  this  case)  can  be
       generated, by default averaging over equivalent hydrogens (all triplets of hydrogens named
       *[123]). Additionally a list of equivalent atoms  can  be  supplied  (-equiv),  each  line
       containing  a  set of equivalent atoms specified as residue number and name and atom name;

       HB* 3 SER  HB1 3 SER  HB2

       Residue and atom names must exactly match those in the  structure  file,  including  case.
       Specifying non-sequential atoms is undefined.
