[Chimera-users] Query regarding Fit in Map

Yes you can use Fit in Map in a script. I've attached an example
Python script. This script comes from the Chimera Python scripts web
page but that web site is down right now. It is necessary to use Python
rather than a simpler Chimera command script because there is no Chimera
command to use Fit in Map. There probably should be, but since Fit in
Map only does a local optimization you need some way to initially
position the molecule or map you are fitting. That is the hard part and
so there hasn't been much demand for the fitting command.
The Python code for the Fit in Map dialog is included in all Chimera
distributions in the directory
You could look at the __init__.py and gui.py to learn what the available
functions are. The gui.py (graphical user interface) file shows how
those functions are called by the dialog.
