g_angle computes the angle distribution for a number of angles or dihedrals. This way you can check whether your simulation is correct. With option -ov you can plot the average angle of a group of angles as a function of time. With the -all option the first graph is the average, the rest are the individual angles. With the -of option, g_angle also calculates the fraction of trans dihedrals (only for dihedrals) as function of time, but this is proba- bly only fun for a selected few. With option -oc a dihedral correlation function is calculated. It should be noted that the index file should contain atom-triples for angles or atom-quadruplets for dihedrals. If this is not the case, the program will crash. With option -or a trajectory file is dumped containing cos and sin of selected dihedral angles which subsequently can be used as input for a PCA analysis using g_covar. FILES
