Hi Damien,
	'saveReplyLog' is a Python function, not a Chimera command.   
Therefore, it should be used directly rather than inside an rc()  
call.  So, like this:

from chimera.tkgui import saveReplyLog
saveReplyLog(r'C:\Program Files (x86)\Hex 6.3\examples\replyLog%d.txt'  
% i)

Note the 'r' in front of the 'C:\Program Files\...' string.  This  
tells Python not to treat the backslashes in the string specially  
(i.e. treat it as a "raw" string).  Otherwise you would need to use  
two backslashes in a row every place you wanted one.
