In the program WHATIF (written by Gert Vriend at EMBL Heidelberg) you can
superimpose structures and later write the data to a new PDB format file
(at least I think so, I havn't tried it myself). Viewing in Rasmol won't be any
problem. If it works, it sounds a lot easier than doing C (I'm close to an 
analpabetic in computer language)

Hope this helps,
