         g_potential  computes  the  electrostatical  potential  across the box. The potential is
       calculated by first summing the charges per slice  and  then  integrating  twice  of  this
       charge  distribution.  Periodic  boundaries  are  not  taken  into  account.  Reference of
       potential is taken to be the left side of the box. It is also possible  to  calculate  the
       potential  in  spherical coordinates as function of r by calculating a charge distribution
       in spherical slices and twice integrating them. epsilon_r is taken as 1,  but  2  is  more
       appropriate in many cases.

       -d string Z
        Take the normal on the membrane in direction X, Y or Z.

       -sl int 10
        Calculate potential as function of boxlength, dividing the box in this number of slices.

       -cb int 0
        Discard this number of  first slices of box for integration

       -ce int 0
        Discard this number of last slices of box for integration

       -tz real 0
        Translate all coordinates by this distance in the direction of the box

        Calculate spherical thingie

       -ng int 1
        Number of groups to consider

        Assume net zero charge of groups to improve accuracy


       - Discarding slices for integration should not be necessary.
