thanks for the clarification.

>> Hi all,
>> what are the meanings of the columns X and dX? From the manual i think
>> the first column X should be the position of the pull-group. But in my
>> case it is the position of the reference group, so i'm a little bit
>> troubled. And what is dX? For me it looks that this is the vector from
>> the reference-group to the pull-group. And then the forces in pullf.xvg
>> were calculated with:
>> F(t)= k*[S - (RP(t)-RP(0))]
>> Where F is the force, S the vector from the reference-group to the
>> spring (= pull_init + t * pull_rate * pull_vec) and RP the vector from
>> the reference-group to the pull-group and t the time.
>> (I used the umbrella pulling, with pull-geometry = position)
>> Am i right?
>> Greetings Thomas
