Note About this fork: PIXY2 is great software, but was not updated for last two years. This fork makes it compilable on recent JVM, removes dependencies on external libraries (XML, JIMI) and adds more recent catalog support (UCAC3) Original README: PIXY System 2 (2007 July 15) README Seiichi Yoshida (email@example.com) MISAO Project http://www.aerith.net/misao/pixy Thank you for downloading the PIXY System 2, Practical Image eXamination and Inner-objects Identification system. This software is developed under the MISAO Project, Multitudinous Image-based Sky-survey and Accumulative Observations. * Manifest ChangeLog The log of changes. README This file. pixy2.exe The launcher of the PIXY System 2 for Windows. pixy2.jar The PIXY System 2 program file. sample.cat The sample star catalog used in the tutorial mode. sample.fts The sample image used in the tutorial mode. sample.xml The examination result of the sample image. * Installation Unpack this package and put the seven files in a folder. * Running the system 1) Windows Run the "pixy2.exe", and a dialog with three buttons will appear. Then push the "Setup" button at first and input the following five parameters properly. Path of java.exe Path of pixy2.jar Path of JimiProClasses.zip Path of plug-in files Memory For example, when your PC has 128MB memory, input "100" or so in the Memory field. But 200MB or more memory is recommended. The "Path of JimiProClasses.zip" and "Path of plug-in files" can be blank. Once you set up the parameters properly, you can push the "Run PIXY" button and run the system. 2) UNIX Move to the folder you installed the system and just type as follows: java -jar pixy2.jar When your workstation has enough memory, it is better to set the option of memory used by the PIXY System. For example, when your workstation has 128MB memory, just type as follows: java -Xmx100m -jar pixy2.jar But 200MB or more memory is recommended. When you have some plug-in files, specify the path of the directory of the plug-in class files using the system property "misao.plugin". For example, when the plug-in files are in "/usr/local/lib/pixy", just type as follows: java -Dmisao.plugin=/usr/local/lib/pixy -jar pixy2.jar When running the PIXY System using J2SE 1.2.2, the system may ask you to install the JAXP, Java API for XML Parsing. In that case, please unpack the JAXP 1.0.1 package and copy jaxp.jar and parser.jar in the proper directory where the PIXY System indicates. * Caution In the case of 2003 January version or the older, the system does not start when you put the files of JAVA or PIXY System 2 under a folder containing white spaces in its name such as "Program Files". Please download the new version of the PIXY System 2. A FITS image data is recorded in bottom-to-top order. However, most of the FITS images in Japan contain data in top-to-bottom order. The PIXY System 2 reads FITS image data in Japanese style by default. So opening a world standard FITS file, the image appears upside down. To show the world standard FITS images in correct order, please select the "Configuration" menu in the main menu, select the "Image Configuration" sub menu, and check "standard" in "Default FITS data order" on the dialog box. The PIXY System 2 cannot view an image to the display when using J2SE 1.3. The examination rarely stops illegally when using J2SE 1.3. Please use J2SE 1.4 or later, or 1.2.2. When Japanese characters are used in the folder or file name, the file cannot be opened by drag and drop using J2SE 1.2.2. In the case of 2003 May version or the older, it may happens that an error message "ERROR: JimiProClasses.zip not found." appears and the system does not start when you push the "Run PIXY" button. Please download the new version of the PIXY System 2. The PIXY System 2 is in the midst of being improved.
