I have a little command line program written in C that does what you
want to do using some
routines from numerical recipes.
If you do not find a simpler solution, I would be happy to dig up the
code and see if it runs on
Essentially your problem comes down to finding the eigenvectors (axis
of main displacement)
and eigenvalues (the amplitude of the displacement) from the 3x3
matrix representation of the
displacement tensor. The Anisou statements in the PDB gives you the 6
unique elements of that
