Not easily. Although you could modify the code in runmin to write the X
(coordinate) array to disk every step. You could do this either by calling
the standard routine for writing a restrt file (mdwrit) on every step. Make
sure you change the contents of the variable restrt before calling the
routine each time or you will overwrite the old file. One example would be
to append the value of nstep to the restrt filename. This will give you
nstepS worth of restrt file for each step.

A second option would be to call corpac on every step so that the x array is
written as successive frames to the mdcrd file.

I hope this helps.
All the best
