This script is used to extract and process replica exchange simulation information from the server output files.

The option -byclient selects simulation information at each step for a specific client. With -bytemp and -bycond the same information is selected at each step for different replicas at specific temperatures or conditions.

The option -apply can be used to apply an external command to each conformation, with -function an internal perl function is applied (see for more details).

It is also possible to carry out WHAM analysis through the external ptWHAM program by using the -wham option.

When it is desirable to deal with trajectory files rather than archive files, -out can be used to specify a CHARMM-compatible trajectory output file where structures will be written. This option for generating a DCD file is useful when dealing with large structures, for visualization, and for analysis. A subset of coordinates can be written to the trajectory file via the -atoms or -nsel options.
