       gmx-mindist - Calculate the minimum distance between two	groups

	  gmx mindist [-f [_.xtc/.trr/..._]] [-s [_.tpr/.gro/..._]] [-n	[_.ndx_]]
		      [-od [_.xvg_]] [-on [_.xvg_]] [-o	[_.out_]]
		      [-ox [_.xtc/.trr/..._]] [-or [_.xvg_]] [-b _time_]
		      [-e _time_] [-dt _time_] [-tu _enum_] [-[no]w]
		      [-xvg _enum_] [-[no]matrix] [-[no]max] [-d _real_]
		      [-[no]group] [-[no]pi] [-[no]split] [-ng _int_]
		      [-[no]pbc] [-[no]respertime] [-[no]printresname]

       gmx  mindist  computes  the  distance between one group and a number of
       other groups. Both the minimum distance (between	any pair of atoms from
       the  respective	groups)	and the	number of contacts within a given dis-
       tance are written to two	separate output	files.	With the -group	option
       a  contact of an	atom in	another	group with multiple atoms in the first
       group is	counted	as one contact instead of as multiple contacts.	  With
       -or,  minimum  distances	 to each residue in the	first group are	deter-
       mined and plotted as a function of residue number.

       With option -pi the minimum distance of a group to its  periodic	 image
       is plotted. This	is useful for checking if a protein has	seen its peri-
       odic image during a simulation. Only one	shift  in  each	 direction  is
       considered, giving a total of 26	shifts.	Note that periodicity informa-
       tion is required	from the file supplied with with -s, either as a  .tpr
       file or a .pdb file with	CRYST1 fields.	It also	plots the maximum dis-
       tance within the	group and the lengths of the three box vectors.

       Also gmx	distance and gmx pairdist calculate distances.
