I am analysing my DCD-trajectories with VMD.
But my scripts are running slow.

Therefore my question: Is it possibly to run VMD in parallel?

I am sitting an on a 2-dual-core-machine and in NAMD I can do something
charmrun namd2.6.linux ++local +p8 ./config.namd

Is it possible to do something similar in VMD?
I am starting my VMD-scripts with vmd -dispdev text -e so there is no
need for the graphic-features.
I only would like to run faster vmd-tcl-analysing-scripts.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
