There are two publicly available C++ class libraries for Protein
Structure that I know of.  One is developed by Phil Bourne &
colleagues at Columbia.  Phil Bourne's address is
system at cuhhca.hhmi.columbia.edu.

I have developed a somewhat more flexible library for protein
structure, but it is slightly less complete at present.

This library is currently available on mbfs.bio.cam.ac.uk, in the
directory seb.  Two versions are available: SEBPDB.0.03.tar.gz builds
under g++ and cfront 3.0.1, while SEBPDB.0.06.tar.gz includes
signficant additional functionality (such as smart pointers), but
builds only under cfront 3.0.1 (due to errors in g++'s template

Full source code is provided for both versions of the library, and it
is under active development to provide more low-level features, to
make it compatible with Keith Robison's molbio++, and to work with
NCBI's ASN.1 specifications.
