Perform minimization from command prompt

Hello,

I am a new user of Avogadro. I can execute avogadro using batch scripts. I
wanted to know where i can find syntax of how to perform minimization in
avogadro from command prompt without using the interface. I also wanted
where I can find the documentation which has the commands to be used to
execute avogadro without the interface.

Thank you,
Divya

Well, you can run many things in Avogadro via Python.

But if you’re interested in the minimization and other force field tasks, you’ll want to directly use Open Babel:

http://openbabel.org/docs/dev/Command-line_tools/babel.html#generating-conformers-for-structures

Hope that helps,
