Hi Michał,

  The fitmap code is in your Chimera distribution in


The algorithm code is in fitmap.py and the command parsing is in fitcmd.py.  There is a Python script fitnogui.py showing how to use this on the Chimera Python scripts page

You probably want to use this with the Chimera Python “chimera --nogui fitnogui.py” because it uses C++ compiled libraries compiled for the Chimera Python.
