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

PYMOL API

cmd.get_names( [string: "objects"|"selections"|"all"|"public_objects"|"public_selections"] )

NOTES

The default behavior is to return only object names.

EXAMPLES

Multiple alignments

# structure align all proteins in PyMOL to the protein named "PROT".  Effectively a 
# poor multiple method for multiple structure alignment.
for x in cmd.get_names("all"): cealign( "PROT", x)

Determine whether or not an object (objName) is enabled:

if objName in cmd.get_names(enabled_only=1):
    print objName, "is enabled"
