PDBCat can be used to manipulate and process PDB files using commonly available text-processing tools such as Perl, awk, etc. The Brookhaven Protein Data Bank stores atomic coordinate information for protein structures in a column-based format which is designed to be read easily read by FORTRAN programs. PDBCat converts the ATOM and HETATM records of PDB files from this column-based format to a field-based one that is more easily processed by standard Unix tools.
