Bob, to follow up on Annemarie and Rolf's discussion, under 'select' in the
manual, please add examples of insertion codes, with a comment that these
are "insertion codes" (so one can search for "insertion" and find it).
As stated, insertion codes are in column 27 of the PDB file.
An example is 1IGY chain B, where there are insertions at 52 (52 and 52^A)
and 82 (82, 82^A-82^C).
So, for example,
select 82:B # should select 4 residues
select 82^B:B # should select 1 residue
select 82^A:B-82^C:B # should select 3 residues, excluding 82
I say "should" because I have not tested these commands.
Chime note: Chime has no mechanism to include insertion codes in select
