sci-chemistry / pdbcat

Manipulate and process PDB files using tools such as Perl, awk, etc

The Brookhaven Protein Data Bank stores atomic coordinate information for protein structures in a column based format. This is designed to be read easily read by FORTRAN programs. Indeed, if you get the format description (from anonymous ftp to, the file /pub/ they show the single input line needed to read each record type. However, I am a C/C++ programmer in the Unix environment. It is a easier for me to deal with field based input than column based ones. If the fields are white space delimited I can easily use awk and perl to manipulate the coordinate information. So I needed some way to convert the ATOM and HETATM records of PDB files from the standard column based format to a field based one and back again. It needed to denote missing fields if they exist. That converter is `pdbcat'.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
