        g_dielectric calculates frequency dependent dielectric constants from the autocorrelation
       function  of  the  total  dipole  moment  in your simulation. This ACF can be generated by
       g_dipoles.  The functional forms of the available functions are:

       One parameter:    y = exp(-a_1 x),

       Two parameters:   y = a_2 exp(-a_1 x),

       Three parameters: y = a_2 exp(-a_1 x) + (1 - a_2) exp(-a_3 x).

       Start values for the fit procedure can be given on the command line.  It is also  possible
       to  fix  parameters  at  their start value, use  -fix with the number of the parameter you
       want to fix.

       Three output files are generated, the first contains the ACF, an  exponential  fit  to  it
       with  1, 2 or 3 parameters, and the numerical derivative of the combination data/fit.  The
       second file contains the real and imaginary parts of  the  frequency-dependent  dielectric
       constant,  the  last  gives  a  plot  known  as the Cole-Cole plot, in which the imaginary
       component is plotted as a  function  of  the  real  component.   For  a  pure  exponential
       relaxation (Debye relaxation) the latter plot should be one half of a circle.
