Chimera Command Usage Conventions

Certain conventions are used to show Chimera command usage:

All commands can be truncated to unique strings. Keyword truncation is not allowed unless a command's manual page states otherwise.

Multiple commands can be combined on a single line, separated by semicolons. This may be useful because the display is not redrawn until the last command in a semicolon-separated series has been executed; that is, multiple graphical changes such as changes in representation, color, and display state can be made to appear simultaneously instead of one by one.
