Compute the angle and distance between two groups. The groups are defined by a number of atoms given in an index file and may be two or three atoms in size. If -one is set, only one group should be specified in the index file and the angle between this group at time 0 and t will be computed. The angles calculated depend on the order in which the atoms are given. Giving, for instance, 5 6 will rotate the vector 5-6 with 180 degrees compared to giving 6 5. If three atoms are given, the normal on the plane spanned by those three atoms will be calculated, using the formula P1P2 x P1P3. The cos of the angle is calculated, using the inproduct of the two normalized vectors. Here is what some of the file options do: -oa: Angle between the two groups specified in the index file. If a group contains three atoms the normal to the plane defined by those three atoms will be used. If a group contains two atoms, the vector defined by those two atoms will be used. -od: Distance between two groups. Distance is taken from the center of one group to the center of the other group. -od1: If one plane and one vector is given, the distances for each of the atoms from the center of the plane is given separately. -od2: For two planes this option has no meaning.
