I would like to get secondary structure information from a PyMOL file. I searched the list and found this:

To dump it to the screen, try:

iterate <object name> & n. ca, print resn,resi,ss

and it works, but the output is a long list of every residue. Is there a command to get the output more succinctly, such as

1-5 L
6-10 H
11-15 S
