PERSON RESPONSIBLE

DESCRIPTION

TVSET either sets the lookup table, or clears the TV device.  

PARAMETERS

server
This is used to specify the TV display device. It is giving in the form:

  type@server

or

  type@device

The first form causes a connection to be made with a network display server, whereas the second form uses local hardware directly. For the network servers, the server process may have to be started before invoking the Miriad task -- see below.

Currently supported types are:

  xmtv          Miriad X server. `server' is the servers hostname.
                (use "localhost" if you are not networked)
                Normally the xmtv server will be the same host as
                the X server. The user will normally invoke the xmtv
                server before running any Miriad TV tasks, with

                  % xmtv  

                If the X server and xmtv server are on different
                hosts, you may need to set the DISPLAY environment
                variable on the xmtv server, and use xhost on the
                X server.

  ivas          IVAS (VMS only). `device' is the VMS device name.
                You will require an IIS IVAS for this.

  ivserver      IVAS server. `server' is the servers hostname.
                Servers are currently installed on
                castor.astro.uiuc.edu and bkyast.berkeley.edu.

  msss          Miriad Sun Screen server. `server' is the serving
                Sun, which can be any Sun with a console. The user
                will normally invoke the server before running
                any Miriad TV tasks, with

                  % msss  

  mxas          Miriad X server. `server' is the servers hostname.
                This is an inferior server to xmtv.
No default.
table
This gives the name of the operation to perform, or look-up table to load. Possible values are:
  'clear'    Reset the TV device.
  'grey'     Black and white look-up table.
  'colour'   Colour look-up table.
  'rainbow'  Another colour look-up table.
