Dear Axel

I've tried what you you suggest but unhappily it does not work.

Dear Peter

My script selects some molecules in the periodic images of my box
simulation which are closed to other molecule (my target). I wish my
script shows me only these selection, which are saved in a variable.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

have you tried?

mol selection "$a"

when using curly braces in tcl, variables are not expanded,
in double quotes they are.
