[Chimera-users] Obtaining the path to a currently loaded model or volume

Hi Ricardo,
	Every opened model in Chimera has an ‘openedAs’ attribute which is either None or a 4-tuple.  For models that were directly opened from a single file on the file system (rather than fetched to a file for instance), openedAs will be a tuple whose first component is the full path to that file.  If you need more that that (e.g. fetched files too, which is more complicated), let me know and I can provide those details.

I would like to be able to pass the model or volume that is currently loaded in Chimera to this separate executable, but for this I need to get the file path to the model's object. Is this possible to do from the Python API?
