> Hi Gromacs users,
> I just started to develop a scripting framework for Gromacs, it makes some
> assumptions about the directory structure and command parameters. You
> cannot prepare or run two different systems in the same directory and
> always pass the -deffnm option to mdrun.
> It is very nice!
> Its main goal is to easy the reproduction of simulation protocols,
> canonical steps used to perform and analyze a simulation. The commands are
> stored in very readable and structured Python file that requires no
> programming knowledge except syntax. Of course you can always extend it
> with code as you need.
> As a bonus it maintain in the .gmx/ directory a checkpoint file that skip
> previously successful commands if started again. Also there is no need to
> source GMXRC in common cases.

> Please make comments, suggestions and critics about GMXSCRIPT. The next
> feature would be an option to generate a file that allows to reproduce a
> simulation in any linux computer with Gromacs installed.
> (apologies for my poor English!)
> Best regards,
> Pedro Lacerda
