I can't say that I understand the difference between R and S... Anyway,
it seems to be irrelevant for the purpose of finding Cartesian coordinates.
What MMTK requires is a Z Matrix. In the Z Matrix, you specify precisely
what each dihedral angle means, and any arrangement can be covered.

Sorry, I can't read Microsoft Word files on my computer.
