Distance between replicas with gmx genconf tool

GROMACS version: 2020.5
GROMACS modification: No
While using the gmx genconf to replicate a small cell to create a supercell, if I don’t use the -dist flag, what will be the distance between the replicas I create (I mean, default distance)? In my case, the molecules are not overlapping, so there is a distance, and I want to know how this tool evaluates the distance.

There is no buffer distance. genconf simply translates coordinates the length of the relevant box vector supplied in the input coordinate file.

Thank you Prof. Justin. I got it now :-)
