[Chimera-users] IDLE for listing selected residues.

Hi JD,
	The first thing is that you probably want to refine your atom  
specifier to just select the oxygens, i.e. use:

select :HOH at o & :301.a zr < 5.0

(an extra "@o" in there).  Then use Actions...Write List to write it  
to a file.  If you really need the list in Python or need to see the  
serial numbers, then this code in IDLE would do it:

for a in chimera.selection.currentAtoms():
	print a.serialNumber
