The script that 吴超 was nice enough to forward will print out  
distances.  If not run in nogui mode (i.e. normally, with the  
graphical interface) the distances will go to the Reply Log, and you  
can save them to a file from there.  Furthermore, you can use the Per- 
Frame->Define Script menu item of MD Movie to have the script  
executed each frame.  You may or may not want to prefix the output  
with the frame number; if you do you need to put mdInfo['frame']  
somewhere in the print statement.
