[Chimera-users] surface capping command

There's no nice way to turn on surface caps from the command-line. I
have a keyboard shortcut "clip and cap" (cc) that turns on per-model
clipping on the first surface model and enables capping. It can be run
using the command-line instead of using a shortcut with command "ac
cc". You might think some trick, like not having any surface opened and
using "ac cc" could turn on capping but no luck -- it does nothing if no
surface is opened. You could do something unpretty like use "ac cc"
with a surface showing and then use the mclip command to turn off the
undesired per-model clipping on that surface.
Another route is to use "open capson.py" where the capson.py file is a
bit of python code attached to this email and capson.py is placed in the
same directory as the command script you are using it from.
I'll add a specific request for a surface capping command to our
feature request list. All the Chimera capabilities should have command
equivalents but we have been lazy and not done that (yet).
