Can you help me to run a NAMD job in parallel i.e. across the nodes. Do have any docs related to this.

Subject: namd-l: feature request: external initiated clean exit
Is it possible to integrate a feature into NAMD to stop with an external signal, like with a new file in the working directory?
I know this from CPMD and think it's quite useful to stop a simulation and don't lose any progress:
You just put a file named "EXIT" in the current working directory and the next time the programme looks into this folder (for example to write in the dcd) it will write a restart and exit in a clean way (and will not remove this file). A script, who build the NAMD-scripts and start them, could see this file and stops too (that's why don't remove it with the restart writing).
If a simulation wants to start and see this file, it could remove this (cause if you start a simulation, you don't want it to end at the same time).
I'm just asking, because i'm not firm enough in programming to implant this on my own.
