gmx principal calculates the three principal axes of inertia for a group of atoms. NOTE: Old versions of Gromacs wrote the output data in a strange transposed way. As of Gromacs-5.0, the output file paxis1.dat contains the x/y/z components of the first (major) principal axis for each frame, and similarly for the middle and minor axes in paxis2.dat and paxis3.dat.


Options to specify input and output files:

-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>] (traj.xtc) (Input)
Trajectory: xtc trr cpt trj gro g96 pdb tng
-s [<.tpr/.tpb/...>] (topol.tpr) (Input)
Structure+mass(db): tpr tpb tpa gro g96 pdb brk ent
-n [<.ndx>] (index.ndx) (Input, Optional)
