[Chimera-users] how to run the command line chimera without actually opening the GUI

I have two structures to superimpose using the match command in chimera.
Once the structures are matched, I save the two models in one pdb file. I
can then just view this pdb file whenever I want. My question is: can I
somehow just do this using the terminal? Meaning the graphic of chimera
doesn't launch, but I get the pdb file that has the correct rotation matrix
of the two superimposed structures. I don't have much programming
experience, and I have no knowledge of calculating rmsd. Would appreciate if
someone would pinpoint me where to start. Thanks.
