RasMol Scripts

    MarvinView can execute scripts containing 3D viewing commands delimited by semicolons or newlines. Comment lines start with #. Currently, only the following subset of RasMol/Chime commands is implemented:

    ballstick ballstick on ballstick true Ball & stick rendering style.This command is Marvin-specific.
    center center atomno center [ x , y , z ] centre centre atomno centre [ x , y , z ] Defines the center point for the rotate and zoom commands. Without argument, the center is set to be the center of gravity. The argument can be an atom number, or three coordinates specifying the distance from the center of gravity. The x , y , z values are in RasMol units (1/250 Angstrom).
    cpk Synonymous with spacefill.
    delay delay seconds Delays the continuation of script execution for the specified number of seconds. The default delay value is 1 second.
    echo text Prints a message to the standard output.
    exit Exits from the script. In the case of nested scripts, it terminates only the current level.
    <a name="src-1803638-rasmolscripts-load"></a>load molfile Loads a molecule file from the specified URL.
    quit Exits from the script interpreter. Terminates all nested levels of scripts.
    refresh Redraws the current image. In Marvin, this command is not necessary because the image is automatically refreshed at the beginning of delay commands and at the end of the script.
    reset Restores the default viewing transformation.
    rotate x angle rotate y angle rotate z angle Rotates about the "x", "y" or "z" axis with the specified angle (degrees).
    <a name="src-1803638-rasmolscripts-script"></a>script file source file Reads a script from the specified URL.Scripts can be nested without any depth limitation in Marvin.
    spacefill spacefill on spacefill true Atoms are represented by balls, bonds are not drawn.
    sticks sticks on sticks true Sticks rendering style.This command is Marvin-specific.
    wireframe wireframe on wireframe true Bonds are represented by lines in wireframe mode.
    wireknobs wireknobs on wireknobs true Wireframe with knobs.This command is Marvin-specific.
    zap Deletes molecule and resets parameter variables to their default values.
    zoom percentage Magnifies to the specified value.

    {warning} RasMol support is incomplete and experimental .
