I am Luca, and I just subscribed in the list.
I ran g_helix for analysis of the ellipticity during a simulation but I
don't understand what is the meaning of the "nm" (nanometer) in the Y
axis in cd222.xvg
It should be ellipticity which is deg cm2 dmol-1
I also took the original article of Hirst and Brooks (1994) JMB but this
 nanometers are still misterious SINCE THE WAVELENGHT SHOULD BE CONSTANT
This question was raised also from another person without answer

In addition in
did not help me so much to understand this amount, I do not have the
code right now and I am lazy to download the whole package

What these nm are?
