You didn't change anything in the script? You have to manually edit the
script to load the correct files. Do they load correctly when you type


I've used it before myself and I don't think I had to update anything other
than the file names it calls.

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.

After you type load, does it actually load the pdbs to compare? Try typing
the following in VMD after you run load:


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.
