g_angle computes the angle distribution for a number of angles or dihedrals. This way you can check whether your simulation is correct. With option -ov you can plot the average angle of a group of angles as a function of time. With the -all option the first graph is the average, the rest are the individual angles.

With the -of option g_angle also calculates the fraction of trans dihedrals (only for dihedrals) as function of time, but this is probably only fun for a selected few.

With option -oc a dihedral correlation function is calculated.

It should be noted that the indexfile should contain atom-triples for angles or atom-quadruplets for dihedrals. If this is not the case, the program will crash.

With option -or a trajectory file is dumped containing cos andsin of selected dihedral angles which subsequently can be used as input for a PCA analysis using g_covar.

 Print help info and quit

-nice int 19
 Set the nicelevel

-b time 0
 First frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-e time 0
 Last frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-dt time 0
 Only use frame when t MOD dt first time (ps)

 View output xvg, xpm, eps and pdb files

 Add specific codes (legends etc.) in the output xvg files for the xmgrace program

-type enum angle
 Type of angle to analyse:  angle dihedral improper or  ryckaert-bellemans

 Plot all angles separately in the averages file, in the order of appearance in the index file.

-binwidth real 1
 binwidth (degrees) for calculating the distribution

 Print dihedral angles modulo 360 degrees

 Use Chandler correlation function (N[trans] 1, N[gauche] 0) rather than cosine correlation function. Trans is defined as phi  -60 || phi  60.

 Average the correlation functions for the individual angles/dihedrals

-acflen int -1
 Length of the ACF, default is half the number of frames

 Normalize ACF

-P enum 0
 Order of Legendre polynomial for ACF (0 indicates none):  0 1 2 or  3

-fitfn enum none
 Fit function:  none exp aexp exp_exp vac exp5 exp7 or  exp9

-ncskip int 0
 Skip N points in the output file of correlation functions

-beginfit real 0
 Time where to begin the exponential fit of the correlation function

-endfit real -1
 Time where to end the exponential fit of the correlation function, -1 is till the end


- Counting transitions only works for dihedrals with multiplicity 3
