       gmx  sans  computes  SANS  spectra  using  Debye formula.  It currently uses topology file
       (since it need to assigne element for each atom).


       -pr Computes normalized g(r) function averaged over trajectory

       -prframe Computes normalized g(r) function for each frame

       -sq Computes SANS intensity curve averaged over trajectory

       -sqframe Computes SANS intensity curve for each frame

       -startq Starting q value in nm

       -endq Ending q value in nm

       -qstep Stepping in q space

       Note: When using Debye direct method computational cost increases as 1/2 * N  *  (N  -  1)
       where N is atom number in group of interest.

       WARNING:  If  sq  or  pr  specified this tool can produce large number of files! Up to two
       times larger than number of frames!
