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
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
mxas Miriad X server. `server' is the servers hostname. This is an inferior server to xmtv.No default.
'clear' Reset the TV device. 'grey' Black and white look-up table. 'colour' Colour look-up table. 'rainbow' Another colour look-up table.
