selection.select_sphere() -- select all atoms within radius

This returns a new selection containing all atoms within the given distance from any atom in the current selection (note that this uses only the current coordinates -- if you move the atoms later, e.g. during an optimization, the set of atoms does not change). Compare with point.select_sphere().
Example: See selection() command.
