Eric has kindly provided a python script (attached at the bottom)  
that will write all the current distance measurements to the Reply  
Log.  Just open the python file with Chimera and it will happen.

Alternatively, depending on your situation, you could use  
"findclash," as discussed in these chimera-users messages a few  
months ago:


I hope this helps,
