g_bond makes a distribution of bond lengths. If all is well a Gaussian distribution should be made when using a harmonic potential. Bonds are read from a single group in the index file in order i1-j1 i2-j2 through in-jn. -tol gives the half-width of the distribution as a fraction of the bondlength ( -blen). That means, for a bond of 0.2 a tol of 0.1 gives a distribution from 0.18 to 0.22. Option -d plots all the distances as a function of time. This requires a structure file for the atom and residue names in the output. If however the option -averdist is given (as well or separately) the average bond length is plotted instead.
