I'm interested prototyping some interactive molecular modeling and simulation code using pymol. I know one can change the atomic coordinates wholesale in simple ways via alter_state (like x=x+1). Is there an efficient way to change all coordinates to arbitrary values (like coordinates output from a simulation)? I could select each atom and alter_state it's xyz values, but I'm hoping there is a better way.
