Respected VMD users,
         I would like to know how to select particular atom around another
atom, for e.g I want to select atom ' F1' within 5 angstrom of another atom,
say ' C1'. The command ' within 5 of resid 2 and type C1' ( in graphical
representation window ) will select all the atoms within 5 angstrom of C1
in residue 1, but I want to select only the ' F1' atoms around C1 within 5
A. How to do such selection?

Thanks in advance
