Chimera Command Usage Conventions

In the Usage sections of Chimera command manual pages:

The brackets, vertical bars, and parentheses mentioned above are merely symbolic and should not be included in the typed command.

All commands can be truncated to unique strings. Keyword truncation is not allowed unless a command's manual page states otherwise.

Multiple commands can be combined on a single line, separated by semicolons. This may be useful because the display is not redrawn until the last command in a semicolon-separated series has been executed; that is, multiple graphical changes such as changes in representation, color, and display state can be made to appear simultaneously instead of one by one.
