DESCRIPTION

"distance" creates a new distance object between two selections. It will display all distances within the cutoff.

USAGE

  distance 
  distance (selection1), (selection2)
  distance name = (selection1), (selection1) [,cutoff [,mode] ]

  name = name of distance object 
  selection1, selection2 = atom selections
  cutoff = maximum distance to display
  mode = 0 (default)

PYMOL API

 
   cmd.distance( string name, string selection1, string selection2,
          string cutoff, string mode )
   returns the average distance between all atoms/frames

NOTES

The distance wizard makes measuring distances easier than using the "dist" command for real-time operations.

"dist" alone will show distances between selections (pk1) and (pk1), which can be set using the PkAt mouse action (usually CTRL-middle-click).
