g_rmsf computes the root mean square fluctuation (RMSF, i.e. standard deviation) of atomic positions in the trajectory (supplied with -f) after (optionally) fitting to a reference frame (supplied with -s). With option -oq the RMSF values are converted to B-factor values, which are written to a .pdb file with the coordinates, of the structure file, or of a .pdb file when -q is specified. Option -ox writes the B-factors to a file with the average coordinates. With the option -od the root mean square deviation with respect to the reference structure is calculated. With the option -aniso, g_rmsf will compute anisotropic temperature factors and then it will also output average coordinates and a .pdb file with ANISOU records (corresonding to the -oq or -ox option). Please note that the U values are orientation-dependent, so before comparison with experimental data you should verify that you fit to the experimental coordinates. When a .pdb input file is passed to the program and the -aniso flag is set a correlation plot of the Uij will be created, if any anisotropic temperature factors are present in the .pdb file. With option -dir the average MSF (3x3) matrix is diagonalized. This shows the directions in which the atoms fluctuate the most and the least.
