will explain (somewhat awkwardly) how to select models in rasmol.
I've never gotten things to work *exactly* as documented, but
select */1 and backbone
What I've never gotten to work is
or select 10.CB
which the documentation implies should work. I always have to do
select 10-13 and *.CB
I think this is primarily a documentation problem, though a little
more flexibility in specificying atoms would be welcome.
For example, I wouldn't mind seeing a primitive that allowed
specifying an atom by number, as they are reported when clicked on.
That is, it would be nice to have
select atom 114 and */1
Atom: CB 114 Group: TYR 16 Chain: A Model: 1
This would be particularly useful for selecting water molecules and
hetero atoms, which can be a bit tricky to select otherwise.
