[Chimera-users] Suggested Improvement of Command Line

Hi Eric,
	I was mildly shocked that “select:” even works, I would have thought you would need a space after “select”.  Nonetheless, I agree that it’s a little weird that you can put spaces almost anywhere in an atom spec but you can’t put them after a comma.  So I changed the parser to allow this.  Now the parser code is extremely arcane, so it was significantly harder to do that than you would expect, but ultimately I prevailed. :-)  It will be available in the next daily build.

This is technically a pretty small quibble, but it may be beneficial in these instances to include something to filter out white space prior to parsing.
