Thank JC and Axel very much for the kind help. It makes perfect sense that there may be already revisions. I tried "puts $hinge_ref_id" and I got the same "no such variable" error message.

The version I used is file "hingefind.tcl" at Could you make the new updated version available to me?

Many thanks.

puts $hinge_ref_id

If it gives the same error, something is wrong with the script then as load should set that variable to -1. If this is the case, please include the script you used with your next email.

Dear VMD experts,

I was trying to use the "hingefind" feature available in VMD. When following the instruction at, "source hingefind.tcl" and "load" worked fine. While when I type "partition 2.0", I got the following error message:
    can't read "hinge_ref_id": no such variable
Could sb make some comments on this?

Many thanks.
