Note also that VRML means VRML1. Not all recent viewers support that old 
standard and require VRML2. If that is true for lookat, change VRML to VRML2 
everywhere in the script and use the environment variable VRML2VIEWER.

Finally, you can also use VMD by replacing VRML by VMD everywhere in the 
script. You must then have PDBVIEWER point to your VMD executable. I tend to 
use VMD exclusively now, as all the VRML viewers I tried were slow or buggy.
