Classic AIPS in Green Bank
To start up AIPS, do one of the following depending on your shell. If you don't know what shell you're using, just type:
in a terminal window.
Bash, bourne, korn shell users
bash$ . /home/aips/LOGIN.SH bash$ aips
Tcsh, csh users
% source /home/aips/LOGIN.CSH % aips
The aips command has many options, including selection of printer, inclusion of "disks" (data areas) from other hosts, remote "tv" (image display) capability, and more. Once you have done the LOGIN.CSH or LOGIN.SH step shown above, you should be able to type "man aips" to get further information.
Refer to the AIPS home page for more info on the package itself.
