We intend to add a command to name the selection, but this has not
yet been done. In the meanwhile, the "alias" command might do what
you need. For example, instead of first selecting
command> select ions z<5 & :/kdHydrophobicity>1 & ~ :trp
(residues within 5 Angstroms of ions, with Kyte-Doolittle
hydrophobicity greater than 1, but not tryptophans) and then naming
the selection, you could alias the expression and reuse it:
command> alias mystuff ions z<5 & :/kdHydrophobicity>1 & ~ :trp
command> col byatom mystuff
command> repr stick mystuff
command> sel mystuff
if you needed the atoms to be selected for some other purpose.

I hope this helps,
