Someone had to try it, so it might as well be me...
"write a VMD script to count the number of CA atoms"
(see attached output capture...)

I'd prefer that it used "top" rather than the hard-coded
molecule index, but overall not bad. I love that it added
the explanation "CA (Alpha Carbon) atoms)" of its own accord.
