[Chimera-users] listen selection command

I think I have goofed over a couple of major details...
1) I was trying to send "listen" command to Chimera before I'd launched Chimera (!)
2) once that was corrected, noticed I had a "list stop selection" command being sent from somewhere else in my code
I am now starting to get notifications from Chimera (using 'url' rather than 'rest', as suggested).
Thanks for your help,

Can you please try using "listen start selection url
http://126.96.36.199:64745/", i.e., use "url" instead of "rest" as the
keyword? I think that keyword may have been changed at some point and
the code and documentation got out of sync (strictly my fault). Let me
know if that does not fix things.
