actually i calculated the cavity inside my protein through voidoo
and it gives me a map. so i was trying to see residues lining the cavity. i
was not aware that voidoo gives us list of atoms lining the cavity in its
log file. any way i looked in the log file and found the residue. i manually
selected the residue (about 100) and make the figures. but it is nice if i
can do it by computers without typing the resid of about 100 residue.
