yes, check any confout.gro you will find six columns

his works fine and gives you binary precision for your velocities and
coordinates. However, since your changing the simulation protocol your
trajectory is discontinuous anyway, so here it is not that important.
When using continuation simulations it is however (use tpbconv for
