The carmafiller is a program that takes a MIRIAD visibility file and converts this to a CASA Measurement Set (ms). You invoke it as follows:
carmafiller vis=orion.mir ms=orion.ms
and to to get some active help on the valid keywords, version etc. use
Here is an old page describing this program, of which some of the caveats are still relevant: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~teuben/casa/carmafiller.html (bimafiller was the old name for carmafiller, and you might also encounter the once prominent name importmiriad)
- There is a not well researched error in the doppler correction of order 0.1 km/s
- Limited in changes in nchan or spectral window setup. Use casa::ms.concatenate
- As of spring 2013 MIRIAD can optionally build the carmafiller. See $MIR/borrow/casacore.README.
