[Chimera-users] Sending commands via terminal

I was wondering if there was a simple way to send commands (such as "open
1zik" or "preset apply int 2’" ) to an already running instance of
chimera.  I want to be able to send this command using 1 line of command. 
This means that "--start ReadStdin" would not work because it allows
commands to be sent indefinitely.

Potentially I could write the commands in a python script and use the
--send command, however I would like to avoid this if I just want to send
a single command to chimera.

Thanks for your help,

Chris Lau
