[Chimera-users] Python -send command and IDLE

I have 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to use send python scripts (with arguments) to an
already running Chimera instance?  I know that it is possible to use to
use the --send feature, however I wasn't able to send argument in with my
python script
(http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/options.html).  I want to
be able to pass arguments to a already running instance of chimera similar
to the --script feature (but this feature forces a new instance of chimera
to open).

2. Along the same lines as the first question, is it possible to use
terminal and python commands to manipulate color, rotation, etc. in place
of using the IDLE?  Currently I am working on a project to that requires
communicating with a computer running Chimera through "ssh"ing into the
computer.  I want to be able to use terminal commands to do basic
manipulations of the molecules from the other machine.

Thanks for all your help in advanced,
