Hey PyMOL gurus:
I have a 'perfect' helix. Is there some way to 'loosen' all of the =
angles in the helix so instead of 3.6 residues per turn, I could have, =
say, 8 residues per turn. My goal is to make the helix more =
'coil-like'. Is this possible?

Well, if you know the phi/psi angles you like, then you could just build
it and specify those angles with my build_seq.py script:
You can specify the phi, psi angles on the command line. Alternatively,
you can create a file of resname, phi, psi and build it with:
if you don't want the phi/psi angles to be the same for every residue.
