g_morph - linear interpolation of conformations

g_morph does a linear interpolation of conformations in order to create intermediates. Of course these are completely unphysical, but that you may try to justify yourself. Output is in the form of a generic trajectory. The number of intermediates can be controlled with the -ninterm flag. The first and last flag correspond to the way of interpolating: 0 corresponds to input structure 1 while 1 corresponds to input strucutre 2. If you specify first 0 or last 1 extrapolation will be on the path from input structure x1 to x2. In general the coordinates of the intermediate x(i) out of N total intermidates correspond to:

x(i) = x1 + (first+(i/(N-1))*(last-first))*(x2-x1)

Finally the RMSD with respect to both input structures can be computed if explicitly selected (-or option). In that case an index file may be read to select what group RMS is computed from.

-ninterm int 11
 Number of intermediates

-first real 0
 Corresponds to first generated structure (0 is input x0, see above)

 Do a least squares fit of the second to the first structure before interpolating
