C   This "program" calculates geometrical parameters of the amino group
C   suitable for constructing Z-matrix
C   The experimental data from microwave spectroscopy for something-C-NH2
C   are frequently given as a N--H bond lenth, C--N--H angle and H--N--H
C   angle. Depending where you start, you need some dummy atoms to build
C   the molecule. This programs gives you a few parameters you might use.
C   Input: 
C   d = N--H bond length, thCNH angle C--N--H, thHNH angle H--N--H
C   Output:
C   a = distance H....H (the base of the H--N--H isosceles)
C   v = the height of the H--N--H isosceles (i.e., v is the bisector of
C       the H--N--H angle). It starts at C and ends at point Y. Point Y
C       is located half way between H atoms.
C   l = distance N--X (X is the projection of Y on the line passing through
C        C--N). l is a projection of v on the C--N line.
C   h = is the distance from Y to X. (h and l are perpendicular,
C       h is a bisector of the H--X--H angle).
C   b = H--X distance, i.e. distance of the point half way between H atoms
C       and C--N line
C   alpha = C--N--Y angle (angle between C--N bond and v).
C   beta = half of H--X--H angle, i.e. half of the dihedral angle between
C          two CNH planes, i.e., H--X--Y angle.
