sele segid prot end orient mass sele segid prot .and. .not. hydrogen end
! first selection picks up those atoms that will be written to new trajectory
! second selection is used in the least squares re-orienting of each frame

! save new psf that is compatible with the new trajectory
delete atom sele .not. segid prot end
