Hi John,
thanks for the quick reply. Basically, once I draw the principal axis of
the protein (using Orient) I should then rotate it of an angle APLHA
and your suggestion to use the matrix 4x4 is excellent. I will try it.
One more question:
I have been reading the manual and I could not find the explanation of
"top" keyword for atomselect. What is the meaning?
The manual says:
atomselect <molId> <selection text> [frame <n>]
so if my protein has id 0 :
atomselect 0 "all and not water"
is it right??



ps. apologies for the later html format email. I changed my preferences.
