[Chimera-users] Request for Source code

Dear Jayaraman T,
Chimera download already includes the Python code, but why not just use Chimera?  It seems like that would be much, much easier than trying to find and understand all the parts of the code to do it.  You can script it with Chimera commands “define” to create helix axes cylinders and “angle” to measure the angle between any pair of those.


…and information on looping through structures:

I hope this helps,

Since we are interested to calculate the interhelical angle and axes for a set of proteins, we found Chimera is really helpful for getting us the results. And i would like to do certain analysis on the basis of these interhelical angles, so i kindly request you to provide me the source code and other requirements for calculating the angle between helices. It would be grateful to you and  please help me out at your earliest convenience.
