Dear all,

I have the last vesion of chimera 1.4 (27371) under a linux machine.

I want to use the measure function.
I have two models. The difference between this 2 models is a 5 degree 
rotation around the x axis.
 >> matrix rotation #1 #0

 >>reply in the log
Position of test.pdb (#0) relative to test1.pdb (#1) coordinates:
  Matrix rotation and translation
     1.00000000   0.00000000   0.00000000   0.00000000
     0.00000000   1.00000000   0.00000000   0.00000000
     0.00000000   0.00000000   1.00000000   0.00000000
  Axis   0.00000000   0.00000000   1.00000000
  Axis point   0.00000000   0.00000000   0.00000000
  Rotation angle (degrees)   0.00000000
  Shift along axis   0.00000000

I think the command does not work in this version (if I misunderstood 
the command please tell me as well). It always give me the same answer 
for any different models I did try.
Since I have to ask my admin each time I want to install something, 
could you just tell me in which version of chimera this command will 
work. Many many thanks.
