I have a question about the animate read and write commands. I wonder what exactly the waitfor option does and how the command flows through. It says in the manual "The waitfor option allows you to specify how many frames to load before returning." before returning... but to where?

I am actually trying to read in frames from a large dcd file with a certain skip number and copy these frames to another dcd file.
