Print a text string to the screen and logfile. One line of output is generated. If the string has white space in it (spaces, tabs, etc), then you must enclose it in quotes so that it is treated as a single argument. If variables are included in the string, they will be evaluated and their current values printed.
If you want the print command to be executed multiple times (with changing variable values), there are 3 options. First, consider using the fix print command, which will print a string periodically during a simulation. Second, the print command can be used as an argument to the every option of the run command. Third, the print command could appear in a section of the input script that is looped over (see the jump and next commands).
See the variable command for a description of equal style variables which are typically the most useful ones to use with the print command. Equal-style variables can calculate formulas involving mathematical operations, atom properties, group properties, thermodynamic properties, global values calculated by a compute or fix, or references to other variables.
