Here it is:
                f = open(pdb, 'r')
                type = 0
                for lines in f:
                    if lines[:6] == 'TITLE':
                        type = 1
                    if lines[:6] == 'COMPND':
                        break

                f.seek(0)
               
                if type == 0:
                    list = pdbdict_0()
                       for lines in f:
                ...................................
               
                if type==1:
                      list = pdbdict_1()
                      for lines in f:

So first the program use a criteria to check what type of the file is, 
and then do different operations from the beginning of the file.
