[gmx-developers] reading non-gromacs trajectory formats and adding of default extension

thanks for the question.
This made me realize that I changed the default behavoir more than makes
sense at this moment.
I don't think it is a good idea to not append the default filetype to output
files. And even for input files it is in general not good. Because the
filetype is based on the ending. And for non-trajectory input it has to be
one of the GROMACS types.
So I reverted the default behavior unless for reading of trajectory data.
Because there it makes sense and also has no weird side effects.
For your problem:
There is a noconfout option to mdrun. May be we should add also a -nolog
option and don't create the trajectory or energy file if anything is written
(if nstenergy/nstxout is 0).
