RESTART
 This is part of the setup module

Activate restart.

This is a Setup directive and, as such, should appear at the beginning of the input file. It influences the way PLUMED treat files open for writing (see also Files).

Notice that it is also possible to enable or disable restart on a per-action basis using the RESTART keyword on a single action. In this case, the keyword should be assigned a value. RESTART=AUTO means that global settings are used, RESTART=YES or RESTART=NO respectively enable and disable restart for that single action.

Attention
This directive can have also other side effects, e.g. on METAD and PBMETAD and on some analysis action.
Options
 NO ( default=off ) switch off restart - can be used to override the behavior of the MD engine
Examples

Using the following input:

d: DISTANCE ATOMS=1,2
PRINT ARG=d FILE=out


(See also DISTANCE and PRINT). a new 'out' file will be created. If an old one is on the way, it will be automatically backed up.

On the other hand, using the following input:

RESTART
d: DISTANCE ATOMS=1,2
PRINT ARG=d FILE=out
