Dependencies

./bin/TransientSearch -opencl_platform ... -opencl_device ...

-device_name allows you to use predefined configs from the input files

Files made by tuning the separate parts (ie. output of tuning / analyse scripts and some editing) -padding_file ... -dedispersion_file ... -integration_file ... -snr_file ...

-zapped_channels ... see Dedispersion -integration_steps ... see Integration

[-print] Prints extra info [-compact_results] Merge consecutive candidates into a single one -input_bits ... see Dedispersion -output ... Output file name -dm_node ... Number of DMs per node (split via MPI) -dm_first ... see Desispersion -dm_step ... see Desispersion -threshold ... signal to noise threshold

Data sources: Lofar: -lofar -header ... -data ... [-limit] -limit -seconds ...

Sigproc: -sigproc -header ... -data ... -seconds ... -channels ... -min_freq ... -channel_bandwidth ... -samples ...
