Dear all,

I would like to know the exact meaning of the angle cutoff
option of hbond command. If Im not wrong, the distance
cutoff for a hydrogen bond of the type O-H...O is defined
as the distance between the two heavy atoms of oxygen, but
Im having strange results when I change the value of the
angle cutoff. For example when I define a value of 60 ,
in the output I get all the angles above 60 but when I
define the cutoff to be 100 I get all my angles under
100 ! This behavior is somewhat contradictory.
How can I get for example all the interactions between
pairs ignoring the angle cutoff?

Thanks in advance.
