Dear Lorenzo,

this has internal reasons; Espresso cannot add particles without knowing their 
positions, and therefore they need to be included in the particle block for 
automated reading.

The best way to get the particle properties is to use the part command. For 
that, you first read the configurations, which is done via

set f [open "config_vel_26" "r"]
while { [blockfile $f read auto] != "eof" } {}
close $f

(see the user's guide, first steps). Then you can use a loop to get all 
particle properties, and store them in whatever format you like. For example 
this generates two Tcl matrices:

set Mpos {}
set Mvel {}
for {set p 0} {$p <= [setmd max_part]} {incr p} {
        set pos [part $p print pos]
        set vel  [part $p print v]
        lappend Mpos $pos
        lappend Mvel $vel
