[Chimera-users] Transform Molecule Coordinates

Hi Reza,

  You can use the Chimera transform molecule coordinates tool to rotate 
a molecule using Euler angles without displaying the Chimera graphical 
interface.  You need a Python script to do this.  I've attached an 
example script rotatepdb.py that you would run from a terminal window as 

    $ chimera --nogui rotatepdb.py

The --nogui flag means that Chimera should not display any windows.

  Chimera is needed because it contains the code that reads and writes 
PDB files and applies transformation matrices.
