g_select writes out basic data about dynamic selections. It can be used for some simple analyses, or the output can be combined with output from other programs and/or external analysis programs to calculate more complex things. Any combination of the output options is possible, but note that -om only operates on the first selection. -os is the default output option if none is selected. With -os, calculates the number of positions in each selection for each frame. With -norm, the output is between 0 and 1 and describes the fraction from the maximum number of positions (e.g., for selection 'resname RA and x 5' the maximum number of positions is the number of atoms in RA residues). With -cfnorm, the output is divided by the fraction covered by the selection. -norm and -cfnorm can be specified independently of one another. With -oc, the fraction covered by each selection is written out as a function of time. With -oi, the selected atoms/residues/molecules are written out as a function of time. In the output, the first column contains the frame time, the second contains the number of positions, followed by the atom/residue/molecule numbers. If more than one selection is specified, the size of the second group immediately follows the last number of the first group and so on. With -dump, the frame time and the number of positions is omitted from the output. In this case, only one selection can be given. With -on, the selected atoms are written as a index file compatible with make_ndx and the analyzing tools. Each selection is written as a selection group and for dynamic selections a group is written for each frame. For residue numbers, the output of -oi can be controlled with -resnr: number (default) prints the residue numbers as they appear in the input file, while index prints unique numbers assigned to the residues in the order they appear in the input file, starting with 1. The former is more intuitive, but if the input contains multiple residues with the same number, the output can be less useful. With -om, a mask is printed for the first selection as a function of time. Each line in the output corresponds to one frame, and contains either 0/1 for each atom/residue/molecule possibly selected. 1 stands for the atom/residue/molecule being selected for the current frame, 0 for not selected. With -dump, the frame time is omitted from the output.
