What kind of analysis do you want to do that is not already there? CHeck
out one of the simpler trajectory analysis programs if you want to do
something yourself. The contrib directory even has a ready template I

Also, are you using xtc files for your trajectory? That saves a factor of
three compared to trr, but you can only store positions.
