Dear all,

I have a model peptide, for which I would like to calculate alpha helix
content (deviation from an ideal alpha helix) over a trajectory of 50000
steps. I got as far as getting the PLUMED environment set up in VMD, but
everything beyond that was met with little success.

It is a small peptide (10 amino acids) that I am looking at, neutral caps.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
