[Chimera-users] how to get nonbonded distance and torsion angle list

Hi PremPrakash,
In the Tools menu, see under Structure Analysis:
- Distances (for measuring distances)
- Angles/Torsions (for measuring angles defined by 3 atoms and  
torsions defined by 4 atoms)

Clicking the Save button on these tools will save the measurements to  
a text file.  How to make the measurements and other details are  
given in the manual page:


The text file of saved measurements is not in formats you mentioned,  
however.  It sounds like you are trying to make input to some other  
program.  You would have to take those measurements and reformat them  
as needed for that other program.

I hope this helps,
