        g_rmsdist computes the root mean square  deviation  of  atom  distances,  which  has  the
       advantage that no fit is needed like in standard RMS deviation as computed by  g_rms.  The
       reference structure is taken from the structure file.  The RMSD at time t is calculated as
       the  RMS  of the differences in distance between atom-pairs in the reference structure and
       the structure at time t.

        g_rmsdist can also produce matrices of the rms distances, rms distances scaled  with  the
       mean  distance  and  the mean distances and matrices with NMR averaged distances (1/r3 and
       1/r6 averaging). Finally, lists of atom pairs with 1/r3 and 1/r6 averaged  distance  below
       the  maximum distance ( -max, which will default to 0.6 in this case) can be generated, by
       default averaging over equivalent hydrogens (all  triplets  of  hydrogens  named  *[123]).
       Additionally  a list of equivalent atoms can be supplied ( -equiv), each line containing a
       set of equivalent atoms specified as residue number and name and atom name; e.g.:

        3 SER  HB1 3 SER  HB2

       Residue and atom names must exactly match those in the  structure  file,  including  case.
       Specifying non-sequential atoms is undefined.
