Command: info

Usage:
info  model-spec

The top-level info command shows information about the specified models in the Log. As per the usual convention, a blank specification indicates “all.” The type of information depends on the type of model, and includes the numbers of atoms, bonds, residues, and chains in an atomic model, the number of coordinate sets in a trajectory model, and the value range and current contour level(s) of a volume model. See also: open, sym

Various subcommands of info report other data or attributes to the Log or to “client” programs:

Some of the subcommands report values for id (unique identifier) and/or index (residue position in biopolymer chain, starting with 0), but these are not attributes. See also: setattr

info atoms  atom-spec  [ attribute attribute-name ]
Report values of an attribute of atoms. By default, the idatm_type attribute is reported for the specified atoms. If attribute is given, values of attribute-name are reported instead.
info residues  atom-spec  [ attribute attribute-name ]
Report values of an attribute of residues. By default, the name attribute is reported for the residues containing the specified atoms. If attribute is given, values of attribute-name are reported instead. Residue attribute names can be listed with info resattr. The reported index is not an attribute, but simply the index of a residue within its chain, starting with 0.
info resattr
List the current residue attribute names.
info chains  atom-spec  [ attribute attribute-name ]
Report values of an attribute of chains. By default, the chain_id attribute is reported for the chains containing the specified atoms. If attribute is given, values of attribute-name are reported instead.
info polymers  atom-spec 
Report the starting and ending residues of the physically connected chains containing the specified atoms.
info models  atom-spec  [ type model-type ] [ attribute attribute-name ]
Report values of an attribute of the specified models, optionally restricted by model type. By default, model type and name attributes are reported; if attribute is given, values of attribute-name are reported instead. The model-type for restricting the output can be any of the type values shown in the default report, without truncation.
info selectionlevel  level ] [ attribute attribute-name ]
Report attribute values for items that are currently selected. The level of reporting can be atom (default), residue, chain, structure (atomic model), or model (any type of model). If attribute is given, values are reported for attribute-name instead of the default attribute for the level.
info bounds  model-spec
Report the bounds for the specified model(s), or if none are specified, the scene bounds. Bounds are reported as the coordinates of the front lower left and the back upper right of a rectangular box.
info distmat  atom-spec
Report all pairwise distances among the specified atoms. The atom-spec cannot be blank. The output consists of lines that start with “distmat,” followed by the specifiers of the two atoms, followed by the distance in Å. The upper triangle of the distance matrix is given row by row, with atoms in the order (if any) in which they were specified.
