Re: [AMBER] image distances

You can use the new 'nativecontacts' command in cpptraj with the
'mindist' keyword to calculate the minimum distance seen either within
a single group of atoms or between two groups of atoms. Imaging is on
by default for this command when box coordinates are present unless
the 'noimage' keyword is specified.

Hope this helps,


PS - You can also find the maximum distance with the 'maxdist' keyword.
