         There is a script at the NAMD website called "rmsd.tcl" at:

         Alternatively, you could try the "rmsd" function in VMD. It is
under "Extensions" -> "rmsd" in the VMD Main Window.

         You need to load both structures into VMD, select one as the
reference and then align the two structures. Then you can compute the
rmsd for each amino acid.

         Finally, if you would like to compute the rmsd of the CA's of two
amino acids in two structures, it might be quicker to just compute the
value by hand.

         Hope this helps!
