Measuring rigid-body rotation with AMBER

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a neat way to measure the
rotation of a whole group of atoms with respect to a reference
set. I have a modular protein, where if you superimpose one
domain with the reference, another domain is rotated as a rigid
body compared to the reference set. How can I get a numerical
value for this rotation using the AMBER suite of programs (advice
on any other programs that would do the same would also be
