Are .hin comments (designated by a line starting with a semicolon) available as a variable in jmol, or should I just parse them directly (e.g., from getProperty fileContents)?
And, the Jmol wiki says:
"at# is the number identifying the atom in the molecule (must start with 1 and be continuous through a molecule). Therefore a combination of atom number and molecule number uniquely identifies an atom in a file. "
Does that mean that, unlike I believe can occur with a pdb, .hin atom numbers are never arbitrarily changed? Or, does it just mean "At any given time, there is a unique combination, but that combination is not guaranteed to be the same from time to time (e.g., if you add or delete atoms)"?
