Andrew Dalke and William Pitt offered some excellent suggestions. Andrew
mentioned CGL's libpdb++. I wanted to mention that we (CGL) also have a
C++ class building system designed for biomolecular applications: the
Object Technology Framework (OTF). It's an alpha release, but you might
want to see if it's something you could use. Documentation/download at:
While looking at the web pages for the software William Pitt mentioned, I
noticed that he had a nice page of links to related biomolcular application
building pages at:
Hope this helps.
