[Chimera-users] bond order

Hi Dan,
	Despite the fact that Chimera computes atom types, it does not  
explicitly compute bond orders.  Internally it does compute bond  
orders in ring systems in order to do the best job it can judging  
aromaticity, but those computations aren't preserved once aromaticity  
is decided on.  So I guess the short answer is no, since we don't have  
easy access to the bond order.
