[gmx-users] extending simulations

Further to what Justin said, I see a lot of people crafting complex bash
scripts to run their whole project in the same directory, and as part of
that the scripts do approximately what
gmx mdrun -cpi -noappend
does - name the output files so that they include a part number, and will
need to be manually appended later. Where's the value for the extra work?
If you put your equilibration and simulation in different directories, you
can use the default file naming and not create problems. :-)
