As noted above, when you exit miriad, all your inputs will be saved in the file lastexit. However, many parameters are used by more than one program and, at present, only one value of each parameter is allowed throughout miriad (global parameters). The command save writes the current parameter values to a default file (taskname.def if the task taskname has been selected) or to a user specified file. This default file (or a user specified file) can be read in using the command <oad. Note that save writes out all parameter values, not just those for the specific task chosen. Example:
histo% save histo% save histo1.parsIn the first case the parameters are saved in a file histo.def, whereas the second case saves them in a user specified file histo1.pars.
