ICIMACS for the MSU 2Kx2K Camera: Configuring the IC Software

12/18/97 : JAM

(ICIMACS = Instrument Control and Image Acquisition System)

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

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