However, The dcd file generated by WRITE_DCD function I wrote cannot be rocgnized by VMD. Maybe this is because the "padding bits" in the dcd file that I cannot understand their meanings through NAMD source code. If there is such a document anywhere, please tell me. Thank you in advance.
why go through those pains and implement the dcd format directly?
it would be _so_ much simpler to write an interface to the
molfile plugin library and as a bonus you'd gain support for _all_
formats that molfile supports.
have a look at the catdcd sources for an example of its usage.
