       gmx-distance - Calculate distances between pairs of positions

SYNOPSIS

          gmx distance [-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>]] [-n [<.ndx>]]
                       [-oav [<.xvg>]] [-oall [<.xvg>]] [-oxyz [<.xvg>]]
                       [-oh [<.xvg>]] [-oallstat [<.xvg>]] [-b <time>]
                       [-e <time>] [-dt <time>] [-tu <enum>]
                       [-fgroup <selection>] [-xvg <enum>] [-[no]rmpbc]
                       [-[no]pbc] [-sf <file>] [-selrpos <enum>]
                       [-seltype <enum>] [-select <selection>] [-len <real>]
                       [-tol <real>] [-binw <real>]

DESCRIPTION

       gmx  distance  calculates distances between pairs of positions as a function of time. Each
       selection specifies an independent set of distances to calculate.  Each  selection  should
       consist  of pairs of positions, and the distances are computed between positions 1-2, 3-4,
       etc.

       -oav writes the average distance as a function of time for each selection.   -oall  writes
       all  the individual distances.  -oxyz does the same, but the x, y, and z components of the
       distance are written instead of the norm.  -oh writes a histogram  of  the  distances  for
       each selection.  The location of the histogram is set with -len and -tol. Bin width is set
       with -binw.  -oallstat writes out the average and standard deviation for  each  individual
       distance, calculated over the frames.

       Note  that gmx distance calculates distances between fixed pairs (1-2, 3-4, etc.) within a
       single selection.  To calculate  distances  between  two  selections,  including  minimum,
       maximum, and pairwise distances, use gmx pairdist.
