I am a graduate student at UCLA. I want to use scripting in VMD to find out
the point group symmetry of a given molecular structure, and also save the
ideal coordinates of the molecule in that symmetry to a new xyz file. I
know that according to the website, this should be possible but I could not
find anything related to finding the symmetry and I do not know where to
begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Shivang Agarwal
