DESCRIPTIONg_angle computes the angle distribution for a number of angles or dihedrals. This way you can check whether your simulation is correct. With option -ov you can plot the average angle of a group of angles as a function of time. With the -all option the first graph is the average, the rest are the individual angles.
With the -of option, g_angle also calculates the fraction of trans dihedrals (only for dihedrals) as function of time, but this is probably only fun for a selected few.
With option -oc a dihedral correlation function is calculated.
It should be noted that the index file should contain atom-triples for angles or atom-quadruplets for dihedrals. If this is not the case, the program will crash.
With option -or a trajectory file is dumped containing cos and sin of selected dihedral angles which subsequently can be used as input for a PCA analysis using g_covar.

View output .xvg, .xpm, .eps and .pdb files
-xvg enum xmgrace
xvg plot formatting: xmgrace, xmgr or none
-type enum angle
Type of angle to analyse: angle, dihedral, improper or ryckaert-bellemans
Plot all angles separately in the averages file, in the order of appearance in the index file.
-binwidth real 1
binwidth (degrees) for calculating the distribution
Print dihedral angles modulo 360 degrees
Use Chandler correlation function (N[trans] = 1, N[gauche] = 0) rather than cosine correlation function. Trans is defined as phi -60 or phi 60.
Average the correlation functions for the individual angles/dihedrals
-acflen int -1
Length of the ACF, default is half the number of frames
-P enum 0
Order of Legendre polynomial for ACF (0 indicates none): 0, 1, 2 or 3
-fitfn enum none
Fit function: none, exp, aexp, exp_exp, vac, exp5, exp7, exp9 or erffit
-ncskip int 0
Skip N points in the output file of correlation functions
-beginfit real 0
Time where to begin the exponential fit of the correlation function
-endfit real -1
Time where to end the exponential fit of the correlation function, -1 is until the end
KNOWN PROBLEMS- Counting transitions only works for dihedrals with multiplicity 3
