_geom_torsion_

Names:
'_geom_torsion_max' '_geom_torsion_min' '_geom_torsion_av'

Definition:

   Maximum, minimum and average torsion angles in degrees bounded
   by the four atom sites identified by the
   _geom_torsion_atom_site_label_ codes. These must match labels
   specified as _atom_site_label in the atom list. The torsion-
   angle definition should be that of Klyne and Prelog (1960).
