Re: unit cell information from dcd file

VMD is the easiest way to go. When you load the DCD file in VMD, unit cell
information is read into the { a b c alpha beta gamma } parameters.
In the console, you could type
molinfo top get { a b c }
to retrieve the dimensions, for instance. You can also use it in a Tcl script
to do different things, or save the info to a text file.
