Dear Mahendra,
Please see this page on writing scripts with looping through structures:


I hope this helps,

How can I use the  command 'distance' for a multiple pdb files (say, 20 pdb files which are generated by simulation of a protein)? I mean, may I need some scripts for looping? Any other alternatives will also help me a lot.
