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

and to to get some active help on the valid keywords, version etc. use

 carmafiller --help

Here is an old page describing this program, of which some of the caveats are still relevant: (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.
