monitoring instantaneous kinetic energy of a subsystem

Hi everybody,

I'd like to monitor the instantaneous kinetic energy of a part of my
system during an MD simulation.

Saving velDCD creates too large files, since I need to record at a
pretty high frequency.

I have kind of understood that it might be possible using the tcl
callback command but no example and no detail on how to use it.

Does anybody have hints?
