> Hi,
> I was trying to calculate the pressure tensors for one of my solid crystal systems. I notice that g_energy does have this option---pressure xx, pressure yy and pressure zz, however the results seem to be a function of running time. How can I extract information about pressure tensor at different position of my solid system? If gromacs allows me to do so, do I need to integrate the tensor value from one position to another position?

I don't think that's possible, considering how gromacs calculates the pressure from the virial. See section 4.8.2 of the manual.
