Looking for RMS distance calculator

Dear Netters,

I am looking for a program that calculates the RMS distance between a given
set of homologous molecular structures. I mean something that could read
PDB files,
possibly ask which atoms to compare (P or all nt atoms for nucleic acids,
C-alpha or all AA atoms for proteins) - although of course one can do this
by hand with any editor, then perform the calculation and give a distance
as output.
Does anything like this exist?
[Any of this OS will be OK (in order of preference): Mac, Unix, Windows, DOS.]

Thank you very much in advance,

                                Luca Jovine
