The Code

from pymol import cmd

def cart_to_frac(objSel,quiet=0,_self=cmd):
    Returns an array of fractional atomic coordinates
    for a given object or selection.

      objSel -- any object or selection

      quiet -- suppress output (default, no)

      _self -- core CMD object; or none

      Python list of fractional coordinates
