ICIMACS for OSIRIS: Configuring the IC Software

7/22/99 : JAM

(ICIMACS = Instrument Control and Image Acquisition System


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

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