Hi Samy:

Yes - I need to document this.

You can use multiple -c options with preproc as in:

   -c traj1-50.crd -c traj51-100.crd -c traj101-150.crd -f 150

You need -f because otherwise, preproc will only process the first 100
frames - legacy behavior from the old SGI-only version.

If you want to compare visually compare trajectories side-by-side, this is
a different problem which MDDisplay does not directly address. But, you
can certainly run multiple sessions of mddisplay in different windows.

Thanks for asking :)
