Hi JD,
I don't know if/where there is a complete list for programmers, but  
the User's Guide "atom specification" page includes tables that list  
several attributes of atoms, residues, and molecule models.  Maybe  
you saw these already.


To see the lists, click the links on the left: Atom, Residue, Model.
