Helpful non-miriad tools
Revision as of 11:02, 20 February 2007 by Teuben
Here are some useful tools you could install to help you with miriad data reduction:
- ds9: to display images and datacubes (and visbricks using uvimage). Miriad has a mirds9 script to load miriad images directly into a running ds9.
- karma: advanced visualization for image data cubes
- gman: gnome (GUI) based Unix man page browser for $MIR/doc/man pages (alternative to mirhelp and help in miriad shell). It is hard to find now, but there are alternatives available. For MacOSX there is a different program with the same functionality. Alternatively, one can browse the html pages created from the doc files (sometimes out of date). And if all else fails, there is always the mirhelp/help command in the unix/miriad shell!
