ICIMACS for DANDICAM: Configuring the IR Software

7/23/98 : JAM

(ICIMACS = Instrument Control and Image Acquisition System

The startup and operation of the IR computer is configurable by editing the following three files:

On startup, the IR program loads its defaults and saved values from the initialization file ANDIIR.INI. The operation of the program can be changed in both trivial and profound ways by changing the values in this file. See the ANDIIR.INI page for a description of the variables saved.
On exiting, the IR saves its current parameters to ANDIIR.INI according to the template file INIAIR.TPL. See the INIAIR.TPL page for an example of how to reformat the initialization file by editing this file.
The format of the FITS header created by the IR for each image saved is controlled by the template file FITSAIR.TPL. See the FITSAIR.TPL page for a description of how the header can be reformatted by editing this file.
