NAMD Community,

Does anyone have a few pointers on opening NAMD up to some wrapper code?
Ideally, I would like to build NAMD as a library and drive it via another
program. I have some "experience" with this using LAMMPS. Its layout makes
doing this type of thing very easy.

I have made my way through the NAMD code and read a good portion of the
Programming Guide recommended by a few users on this listserv, but I'm still
having trouble locating a spot where I can have some low-level access: atom
positions, forces, etc. Also starting up NAMD and issuing commands
on-the-fly.
        
I would greatly appreciate a few tips on where to start and, if possible, a
quick statement on the structural changes of NAMD since the Programming
Guide was released.

Thanks,
Michael Sellers
