Tom,Thank for your quick response.
I have 420 pdb files for icosahedron T=7 virus capsid. All the file names is
the same as the ones in previous session file. Is it possible to do it with
one command? If I load all the 840 pdb files into chimera, it will be very
slow and even crash my computer.
Is it possible to do it without loading into Chimera?
Again, thank you for implementing these commands.
