[Chimera-users] HELP: I'm wondering about how to access the surface data

Chimera includes Python.  I'm not  sure what path you are asking about.  
Two ways to use Python in Chimera are 1) use File / Open to open a 
Python script (myfile.py).  This will run the Python code.  Print 
statements from the code will appear in the Reply Log (shown with menu 
entry Favorites / Reply Log).  To directly work with a Python shell 
within Chimera use menu entry Tools / General Controls / IDLE.  IDLE is 
the name of a Python shell developed by others.  That gives you a window 
with a Python prompt where you can type in Python code and run it and 
explore Chimera data structures.

> how can I access the data generated by mscalc in python?
