write_restart command


write_restart file 


write_restart restart.equil 


Write a binary restart file of the current state of the simulation. Only particle information is stored in a restart file.

During a long simulation, the restart command is typically used to dump restart files periodically. The write_restart command is useful between simulations or whenever you wish to write out a single current restart file.

Restart files can be read by a read_restart command to restart a simulation from a particular state. Because the file is binary (to enable exact restarts), it may not be readable on another machine.


This command can only be used for spatial simulations.
