Dear UCSF Chimera Team:
Please, I would much appreciate your advice on the following:
Given a number of planes - calculated/created through the 'define' command - I would like to select one of them, with some command entered at the command line .... How can I do it?
The reason why I want to select it through the command line, and not by directly by clicking at it at the axes/planes/centroids table, is because later I would like to use the command inside a runCommand statement, in a Python/IDLE script (with *.py extension) ...
By the way, do you think this piece of code could work?
Assume that the desired plane is already selected .... I want to internally handle the plane as 'p1' in my Python code:
from chimera import selection
or perhaps this single instruction .....
Let me try to explain: Within my Python code, I want to have a way to make reference to a plane created by the 'define' command ( should I call it a ' handle'? ... not sure whether it is the correct term ...).
Well, I hope that I managed to make it sufficiently clear ... Thanks in advance for your kind attention.
