[Chimera-users] Step through trajectory from command line?

Hi Kristina,
	There is no command for advancing trajectory frames.  Perhaps you  
can detail the scenario that you need this for and why the per-frame  
scripting of the MD Movie tool doesn't cover your needs.  Are you  
trying to completely automate the production of a movie from a  
trajectory or some such?
	Even if there were a command to advance the trajectory, how would  
you know when to stop?  There are no "flow control" statements (if  
statements/for loops/functions) in the Chimera command language.  I  
think you will have to use Python scripting for completely automating  
trajectory-related scripting.  I can provide assistance there.
