Segment Concept

A PyMOL Segment is a set of atoms within a single molecular object that share all property identifiers except atom names, residue and chain property identifiers.

Segments are most useful in cases where multiple copies of an identical set of chains must exist inside of a single molecular object. They also come in handy for complex proteins which have more chains than can represented with a single-character alphanumeric identifier.
