Dear Elaine and Eric,
Thanks for the inputs. I started the chimera interface and tried to use the
StructureMeasure module using the IDLE that is present in chimera but it
shows me import Error. I dnt understand why. I am using chimera 1.5 alpha
version 29904. Do i need to set some path to use the module.

>>> from StructureMeasure import *
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#8>", line 1, in <module>
    from StructureMeasure import *
ImportError: No module named StructureMeasure
