Output files

During a simulation with collective variables defined, the following three output files are written:

Other output files may be written by specific methods applied to the colvars (e.g. by the ABF method, see 13.5.1, or the metadynamics method, see 13.5.3). Like the colvar trajectory file, they are needed only for analyzing, not continuing a simulation. All such files' names also begin with the prefix outputName.
