Configuring spock as a WWW browser helper application

Spock can respond to two MIME types, chemical/x-pdb and chemical/x-spock via the helper application webspock. In order for this to work properly, the following lines need to be added to the global mailcap and mime.types files, or the user's $HOME/.mailcap and $/.mime.types. The script will do this automatically if it's run as root and it finds /usr/local/lib/netscape, otherwise it will have to be done manually.

# mailcap addition for spock
chemical/x-pdb; webspock %s;
chemical/x-spock;webspock NULL %s

# mime types for spock command scripts and pdb files
type=chemical/x-spock  \
desc="Spock command script"  \
type=chemical/x-pdb  \
desc="Protein Data Bank files"  \
