Is it possible to use VMD to output index information for the dihedrals of a
molecule. I see that I can use the get function within atomselect to get the
angle values (phi,psi) but what I am looking for is an index.

(I then plan to align these indexes with those assigned by a molecular dynamics
program to selectively restrict their variation.)

Thanks for any pointers,
