This script will automatically setup, heatup, and equilibrate a given solute in explicit solvent. The final structure is meant to serve as a starting structure for production moelcular dynamics runs.

apply restraints to atoms outside specified residue range
-cons [ca|cb|cab|heavy] refpdb|self min:max[_force][=...] 
apply restraints to specified residue range
fix solute atoms
-densitysteps value 
number of time steps during simulation for estimating solent density
