I'd use the colvars module of NAMD, or the colvars module in concert
with standard constraints and restraints, depending on what your
constraints look like. This would be the pseudocode if you took the pure
collective variables approach:
Where "..." stands in for alot of things you can fill in depending on
your system based on the appropriate details in the NAMD user guide.
Just as a warning, this is very much a namd-l kind of question, rather
than a vmd-l one.
