In my understanding, *.gro file is conformation file, it only has the
coordinate information, does it also has velocity information?

if I run a system first NVT, then NPt, my understanding is that I use
"grompp" to be able to read in the velocity from *.trj generated from NVT,
then use it to NPT, am I right? if not, please correct me.
