In answer to your question, when DOCK works properly, it will create a
file in .mol2 format. There are several free programs available to
visualize this format. If you have a particular pdb viewer in mind, you
should be able to convert from .mol2 format to .pdb format using the
program babel. For more information on both the visualization programs and
