This script calculates phi, psi, and chi1 dihedral angles. If two structures are given as input it calculates the root mean square deviation for all residues as well as the fraction of angles in the second structure found within 40 degrees of the corresponding angle in the reference structure.

With the option -list followed by phi, psi, omega, or chiN and a single structure as argument a list of dihedral angles is written to standard output.

The option -l is available to restrict the comparison or list output to a residue subset.

It is also possible to specify an arbitrary set of four atoms with -atoms for which the dihedral angle is calculated.
