How about using

import longfilename as sh

Then either access with python way

Or the name provided in the extend command

func string, 10

Following normal conventions seen in python

import numpy as np

I have a number of python scripts that I use regularly. I would like to create shortcuts for these in my .pymolrc. For instance,

alias co, color_obj

Unfortunately, aliases cannot take arguments (using MacPyMOL 1.3). Is there a way to create aliases for commands that require arguments? I could modify the cmd.extend() call in each python script, but I'd rather do it from my .pymolrc since some scripts are shared.
