Cache manages storage of precomputed results, such as molecular surfaces.

Usage

cache action [, scenes [, state ]]

where, the arguments are:

action

string: enable, disable, read_only, clear, or optimize

scenes

string: a space-separated list of scene names (default: )

state

integer: state index (default: -1)

Examples

cache enable
cache optimize
cache optimize, F1 F2 F5

Notes

"cache optimize" will iterate through the list of scenes provided (or all defined scenes), compute any missing surfaces, and store them in the cache for later reuse.

API

cmd.cache(string action, string scenes, int state, int quiet)
