 Dear Amber Users,
  I am using the ptraj program (on amber6.0)to compute the dihedrals etc
from the trajectory file containing two residues 1. drug molecule and
the script is as follows:
trajin ne2pd500.traj
 trajout ne2pd500_out.traj
 rms first out ne2pd500_rms .C,P,O
average ne2pd500 pdb
dihedral zx .H64,C29,C30,H66 ph2
 while caculating dihedrals it gives the following error:

TRAJ: dihedral zx .H64,C29,C30,H66 ph2
 Mask [.H64,C29,C30,H66] represents 4 atoms
WARNING: Error in mask string,no "." or ":" present (ph2)
WARNING in ptraj(), dihedral: Error in specification of the third mask
Ignoring command

I am not able to understand this can you plese provide help. Also, is
this the right format to define the atoms or not. thanks in advance.
