Dear VMD users

Is there a way to use the measure rmsf command within the framework of
I ask this because I know that the rmsf command will use avpos to calculate
the average position of each do this I imagine that vmd requires
to whole or at least the desired part of the trajectory to be loaded in the
memory in order to be able to compute the average position. Thus, I think
this will not work using bigdcd unless one includes in the measuring script
some way to store the average position. How can this be accomplished?
