This script looks for the given symbol in a given module(s). This can be handy if you forgot which module something is in or just want to query for a substring in a set of modules.
# search pymol and pymol.cmd for any symbol starting with 'mov' fs("mov") ['cmd.get_movie_length', 'cmd.get_movie_locked', 'cmd.get_movie_playing', 'cmd.mmove', 'cmd.move', 'cmd.movie', 'cmd.moving', 'cmd.remove', 'cmd.remove_picked'] # Search PyMOL's CMD module for something called align fs("align", "cmd") ['cmd.align', 'cmd.alignto', 'cmd.cealign', 'cmd.get_raw_alignment']
import pymol import inspect import pprint def fs(needle,haystack=["pymol","cmd"]): """ This script will find the 'needle' in the 'haystack,' where the former is a symbol to be found in the latter, which is a module.
