DESCRIPTION

ITEMIZE is a MIRIAD task which dumps a dataset or an item within a dataset. If the input name is an item, then the contents of the item (element for element) are written to the screen. If the input name represents a dataset, then a summary of the items within the dataset are given. If multiple input files are given, it acts as a file scanner, and some minimal information is given about the the kind of dataset. Large datasets with more than 2147483648 are reported with the wrong count (MIR4 to be fixed in version 4.1) Here is a recipe to create a miriad dataset from scratch. You can then use puthd to add items:
        mkdir data ; touch data/header
 

PARAMETERS

in
The name of either a dataset, or an item within a data set or a wildcard. For example:
  % itemize in=dataset
or
  % itemize in=dataset/item
or
  % itemize in='*'
For example, to show the history information of file ``cm'', use
  % itemize in=cm/history
When a dataset name is given, itemize summarizes the contents of the entire dataset. When an item name is also given, then itemize dumps the entire contents of the item (in accordance to the index and format keywords). When a wildcard expands in more than one file, itemize only checks to see if the specified file is a miriad dataset, and attempts to say a few intelligent things about it.
log
The name of the output listing file. The default is the users terminal.
index
When dumping an entire item, "index" specifies the range of elements to dump. The default is the entire item. For example, to print out lines 10 through 20 of the history item, use:
  % itemize in=cm/history index=10,20
format
When dumping an entire item, this gives the FORTRAN format specifier to be used. For example, when dumping a real item, you may set:
  format=8e15.7
The default varies according to the data type.
scan
Scan mode if multiple input files are specified. If "scan=miriad" itemize only reports on what it thinks are Miriad data files. If "scan=image" itemize makes an index of image parameters for each Miriad image in the input files. The default scans all input files.
