Dear all

I have made a tcl/tk script for vmd, which runs in text mode. My
script needs to load just the last part of a big trajectory xtc file,
but I takes a lot of time to do it. Is there any way to improve this
loading procedure?

I've used the following lines in my script:

mol new file.gro waitfor all
mol addfile file.xtc type xtc first 40000 last 60000 - step 1 waitfor all

Thank you in advance.
