get_names returns a list of object and/or selection names.

PYMOL API

cmd.get_names_of_type( [string: "type"] )

NOTES

The object types are strings such as "object:molecule" for a molecule type and "object:map" for a map.

EXAMPLES

Truncate names of all molecules

# Get names for all molecules.
for x in cmd.get_names_of_type("object:molecule"): cmd.set_name(x,x[:5])
