DESCRIPTION

  "get_view" returns and optionally prints out the current view
  information in a format which can be embedded into a command
  script and can be used in subsequent calls to "set_view".

  If a log file is currently open, get_view will not write the view
  matrix to the screen unless the "output" parameter is 2.

USAGE

  get_view

PYMOL API

   cmd.get_view(output=1,quiet=1)
   
   my_view= cmd.get_view()
  output control:
  
     0 = output matrix to screen
     1 = don't output matrix to screen
     2 = force output to screen even if log file is open
     3 = return formatted string instead of a list
       

API USAGE

   cmd.get_view(0) # zero option suppresses output (LEGACY approach)
   cmd.get_view(quiet=1) # suppresses output using PyMOL's normal "quiet" parameter.

NOTES

   Contents of the view matrix
     0  -  8 = 3x3 rotation matrix which transforms model to camera space
     9  - 11 = camera position (in model space and relative to the origin of rotation)
     12 - 14 = origin of rotation (in model space)
     15      = front plane distance from the camera
     16      = rear plane distance from the camera
     17      = orthoscopic flag
