Simple C++ PDB reader (reads the protein description format)

dsr-pdb is a simple C++ PDB reader along with a couple of programs which use it to manipulate pdb files applying a rigid transform or splitting/merging. The are aimed at people interested in proteins from a geometric viewpoint as they allow easy access to the geometry and bond structure in addition of the biological information. The reader has two modes for reading/writing a pdb file. The simplest one, through the Protein class just reads and writes a single protein from/to a pdb file which must have only one chain, but can have multiple models. The second, through the PDB class can handle pdb files with multiple models and herogens although these are just passed through and not currently interpreted.
