Hi Yinon,

  Elaine mentioned the split molecule command available from the Chimera
experimental features page:


For this to be useful in a script you have to know how it assigns new
model numbers to the chains.  I've just now changed the split molecule
code so it assigns the model numbers in a predictable way.  If you
have model #0 with chains A, B, C, the "split" command will make
3 models: chain A is #0.1, chain B is #0.2, and chain C is #0.3.
The chains are sorted alphabetically and each has the same model id
number as the original model and a sub-id number.  This improved "split"
command is on the experimental features web page now.
