DESCRIPTION

extend is an API-only function which binds a new external function as a command into the PyMOL scripting language.

PYMOL API

cmd.extend(string name,function function)

PYTHON EXAMPLE

def foo(moo=2): print moo
cmd.extend('foo',foo)

The following would now work within PyMOL:

PyMOL>foo
2
PyMOL>foo 3
3
PyMOL>foo moo=5
5
PyMOL>foo ?

Usage: foo [ moo ]

NOTES

For security reasons, new PyMOL commands created using "extend" are not saved or restored in sessions.
