[Chimera-users] Sending commands via terminal

We don't have a one step way to send a command to Chimera though I
agree that would be handy. I'll add to our request list a command-line
option like --send that just takes Chimera command instead of a file.
For now I'm afraid the best that can be done is to use a temporary file:
echo "open 1zik" > /tmp/a.cmd ; chimera --send /tmp/a.cmd
