Nographics mode

    Spock may be run in a non-graphics mode by invoking it with the command line spock -ng. This allows spock to be run from any terminal, not just ones with graphics hardware. After spock starts you'll be presented with a prompt: spock> . Any command you can enter on the command line of the graphics version is available here. There is also a command menu that will put up the main menu (equivalent to the menu bar of the graphics version). Thus, you can interactively use spock from a text-only console if you like. Further, the nographics mode allows you to use spock to do off-line batch-mode processing of history files. This can be quite useful for detailed searches through the protein data bank with spock.
