   DEFINE_STRUCTURE, by Richards, Kundrot, and Kahn, is in
FORTRAN.  Like DSSP, it's not public domain, but it's free if
you sign a licence.  Contact Art Perlo (perlo at csb.yale.edu) 
to get it.

   You might ask DSSP co-author Chris Sander (sander at embl-heidelberg.de) 
if he'd be willing to make this modification for you.  It sounds simple, 
and he's a helpful man.
