I am currently trying to merge sixty copies of the cowpea mosaic virus
capsid molecule into one large solvated molecule (like the one provided for
the satellite tobacco mosaic virus tutorial). I found the
MergeMultiFramesPDB Tcl file, but I had a few questions regarding it.
1) Do I need to download Tcl itself separately from NAMD and then implement
this code?
2) Where do I program the code? Do I just use the TkConsole?
3) Where in the code do I need to provide file paths? Is "workdir" a part
of the code or a reference to providing the file path to the work directory?
I have already tried to use the TkConsole to utilize the code but it has
not worked and does not yield any new files.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
