Well, it's not really much of a special "file format" (I don't know if 
any other program reads the formatting).

 Just open the file in an editor, remove the formatting options in the 
beginning, and the # or & at the end and you have the raw data which you 
can open in any graphing program (even excel :-)

The first column is always the x-axis coordinate and then each of the 
following columns represent a variable.

For instance, if you run g_energy and select "total potential energy", 
the x-axis will be the time and y-axis the total energy in kJ/mol.
