hi Jason:
 
thank you so much.... your
print cmd.get_atom_coords("A/30/CA");
 
command is working fine!!!
 
i wish to know how to edit the coordinates and change the position of the atom.....
 
when i open the pdb file in the word document i could see all the coordinates.. is it possible that i can change the coordinates their itself?????  further the command line you have stated give the coords for the entire amino acid.... is it considering all the atom in the aminoacid and giving the coords for the central value????

In newer PyMOLs this is as simple as:
print cmd.get_atom_coords(oneAtom)
where 'oneAtom' is an object or selection of one atom in PyMOL.
For example,
load $TUT/1hpv.pdb
print cmd.get_atom_coords("A/30/CA");
