Amber does not include this option for minimization. I would guess that none
of the developers felt a need for it: for most macromolecules, structural
changes upon minimization are pretty boring.

You could look at runmd.f to see how mdwrit() is called, then add a similar
functionality to runmin.f

...good luck...dac
