[Chimera-users] using IDLE

Hi again...

Thanks for getting back so quickly, and sorry to bother you again.  I tried
to use the format mol2 before but I get an error.  I think that I am missing
something very basic - I saw the man page

And I tried the command: "write format mol2 selected 0 his.mol2" and
different variations of that, and I always get an error: "format is not a
model number".

What am I doing wrong? Could you please write the command to save a
selection as mol2?

Me again!
Just noticed you also omitted "format mol2" from the "write"  
command.  The default format is PDB (even if you name it *.mol2).  In  
my experiments I was concentrating on what atoms were there rather  
than the output format.

Anyway, each command has a man page that describes its options and  
defaults.  If you type the command "help [full-command-name]" it will  
show that command's man page, for example:
   help write
and each individual command page links back to the index of all  

Hopefully no more postscripts on this message...
