The Group command creates or updates a "group" object. The grouped objects are collected underneath a + sign in the object tree (see images).

Group is tremendously helpful with multi-state or multi-structure sessions. Wildcards work great, for example:

# put all of objState into the group "ensemble".
group ensemble, objState*


group name, members, action


group efHand, 1cll 1ggz 1sra

# allow addition and removal from the group
group efHand, open
# disallow addition/removal from the group
group efHand, close


Group objects can usually be used as arguments to commands. It can be processed as a group or as a selection, in which case all the atoms from all objects in the group will be used.
