Run parameters and Programs#
We install standard UNIX man pages for all the programs. If
you have sourced the
GMXRC script in the GROMACS binary directory for
your host they should already be present in your
variable, and you should be able to type e.g.
man gmx-grompp. You can
also use the
-h flag on the command line (e.g. gmx grompp
-h) to see the
same information, as well as
gmx help grompp. The list of all programs
are available from gmx help.
Information about different file types can be found in File formats.
GROMACS files written in XDR format can be read on any architecture with GROMACS version 1.6 or later if the configuration script found the XDR libraries on your system. They should always be present on UNIX since they are necessary for NFS support.
