You likely want to output the results to a file...

hbond print 0.05 series hbt out hbond.dat

For your data, it is estimated that it will require 1.7GB of RAM. Make
sure the machine has this much and that you have unlimited memory use
(from the shell, type unlimit memoryuse).

If you do not have this much memory, you will need to do it over multiple
runs (by reducing the number of donors/acceptors in each, i.e. one script
with half the donors and all the acceptors and the other script with the
other half of the donors with all the acceptors).
