[chimera-dev] Programmer's reference

Hi JD,

   The automatically generated programmer's reference was removed from 
the Chimera distribution because it was large and rarely useful.  When 
it was taken out of the distribution we did not set up a daily automated 
build for a web site reference guide.  I believe that used to come from 
the automatic Chimera distribution builds.  We'll discuss whether we 
should bring this back at this Thursday's developer meeting.

   For development here we use dir() and help() in the IDLE shell as 
described previously

Also we look directly at Python code files which are included with all 
Chimera distributions under the chimera/share directory 
(Chimera.app/Contents/Resources/share on Mac) and we look at the C++ 
header files which are included in distributions under chimera/include. 
  Of course we work all the time on Chimera code so these methods may 
not be ideal for your less frequent programming needs.

   While we ponder this, you can use the Chimera 1.3 programmer's 
reference included with the distribution in
