[Chimera-users] Non-gui chimera in a shell?

	I've read several threads about nongui use of chimera and that some  
work was started. This work seemed mainly aimed at getting a web  
server script to run chimera and return some result back to a  
browser. I'm interested in running chimera in a stand alone python  
script. I'd like to do molecular calculations using the various tools  
but all on a command line, no graphics. It seems the --nogui option  
would get this, but the OS X version does not seem to implement that.  
Perhaps I'm missing something. Can anyone help?

	ideally I'd like to just have a plain python script that imports the  
chimera package but does not choke on all the graphics stuff, and  
then lets me use the chimera object model and other programming objects.

Thanks for any assistance,
