Fetch Path

From PyMOLWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fetch_Path sets the default path that PyMOL uses to load files from before it tries to download them from the PDB.

Contents

Details

If you have a local copy of the PDB on your machine, say in directory /spc/pdb then, once you set Fetch_Path to that directory the fetch command will look in /spc/pdb before going to the PDB for your file. Also, the files fetched from the PDB are stored here once downloaded. PyMOL will only look for files starting with the pdb code in lower case.

Usage and Examples

set fetch_path, path
 
set fetch_path, /spc/pdb
 
set fetch_path, D:\mypdbs\

Hints

If you have a local directory for storing files then put

set fetch_path, /your/path/here

in your pymolrc file to auto set this setting.
