Gly is a good approximation since it has no side chain, but you are
positive that you are dealing with some kind of an amino acid residue.
If your PDB file contains the proper 3 letters codes as listed in
$MODINSTALL6v2/modlib/restyp.lib, they should be properly recognized in
the on eletter format too, otherwise Gly...
If you want to have . in your ali, you need to replace ATOM records to
recods in your coordinate file for atypical residues.
"HETATM_IO =on" effects only HETATM records.
