Hi François,

   Yes "chimera --send" is broken in Chimera 1.6 but fixed in the daily 
builds a few days ago.  Here is a way to fix your Chimera 1.6 if you 
prefer to continue using the production release

To fix "chimera --send" in Chimera 1.6 change line 71 of the following file


in your chimera distribution from

   web_file = "chim_webinfo-%s" % username


   web_file = "chimera_webinfo-%s" % username

(the "chim_" is now "chimera_").

> Hi all,
> I want to be able to interact with Chimera from another program, sending commands and all. I tried the chimera --send my_file.com to test it under MacOS 10.7. Each time I do this, it opens a new instance (instead of reusing the previous one) and doesn't process my_file.com at all. When I open my_file.com from inside chimera, it operates the commands inside it without any problem.
