COPY command sentences copies an property from the first SELECTION to the second one. Two SELECTIONS and a property must always be specified.
Copying is made by pairing atoms (ATOM, CLASS, COORDINATES, CHARGE, COLOR, RADII) or residues (RESIDUE, SEQUENCE) according to their sequential position in the both selections from first to the second. For example atom property of the third atom found in the first selection is copied to the third selected atom found in the second selection. Copying is done from the first selection(A) to the second one(B). Relation is B := A.
