Dear Prof. Case,
this is regarding a possible change of the code in order to get the
per-atom contributions of the solvent-accessable surface area:
do you have any further information on what subroutine one would have to
change and who wrote it? what are the legal issues one has to consider
when making changes?
Many thanks in advance.
