Nearest neighbour, nnn...etc. of an atom in a crystal

  1. Dec 29, 2016 #1
    There are some software can provide visualization of crystal or protein structure, i.e. VESTA.
    I want to know how many atoms is the nearest neightbour (and their distance), and the next nearest neighbour....etc of a particular atom.
    Is there any software (or perhaps some data book?) can do this?

    Thanks, I have got this program. Could it also be used for crystal structures?
    But don't know how to exits from it, except restart my computer....
    It is not a window version. Perhaps evolved from some program 20 years ago and still in command mode.....
