This script creates the command "saveGroup". saveGroup will save the specified group to disk as one file with all group objects in it, or as many files one pdb in each file. To save to one file just call
saveGroup groupName
to save to many files call
saveGroup groupName, oneFile=False

The Code

<source lang="python"> import pymol from pymol import cmd, stored

def saveGroup(g, oneFile=None):

   Save all files inside group 'g' to either
   one file or a list of files
       name of the group to save
       if not specified or None, saves each protein in the group
       to its own file, if oneFile=True, then saves all the files
       in the group to just one file.
   oneFile = (oneFile!=None)
   if cmd.get_type(g) != "object:group":
       print "Error: please provide a group name to save."
   stored.models = set()
   cmd.iterate(g, 'stored.models.add ..→
