I have a question regarding the use of the command "firsttimestep". This
command is particularly important when restarting a simulation. However, in
the input file we include the information from the previous simulation
(.coor .vel and .xst). Assuming that our simulation stopped working at 1000
timestep, what could happen if we specify the firsttimestep as 900 instead
of 1100 or 1000 (say)?
And also what if we just use 0 as the first time step?

Thank you
