Selection exporters

Functions to write a :class:`MDAnalysis.core.groups.AtomGroup` selection
to a file so that it can be used in another programme.

    VMD_ selections
    PyMol_ selections
    Gromacs_ selections
    CHARMM_ selections

The :class:`MDAnalysis.selections.base.SelectionWriterBase` base class and
helper functions are in :mod:`MDAnalysis.selections.base`, with the
exception of `:func:get_writer`:
