Miriad is a radio-astronomy data reduction package, developed by Bob Sault for BIMA, starting in 1987. Although it was originally developed to meet the needs of the BIMA consortium; an ATNF version - derived from the same code base - is also available independantly. Apart from BIMA and ATNF, MIRIAD is also known to handle e.g. VLA and WSRT data. This BIMA release of MIRIAD is under CVS control, and daily snapshots are available. If you see a file 'VERSION.cvs' in the root directory, this is not an officially blessed MIRIAD release, but the "CVS" snapshot. The VERSION file contains the official release number (3.0.0 or higher in CVS) Major new features in MIRIAD since the CVS based releases: - simplified automatic install on linux and solaris (V3.0.x) - better scalability for larger arrays (V3.1.x) (MAXDIM/MAXDIM2, MAXANT/MAXANT2, ...) - maximum filesize is now > 2GB (V4.0.0) (scratch files still limited to 8GB) (t.b.a) To install the BIMA version of MIRIAD, there are a few options: - binary releases (astromake/linux versions now available) - follow 'install.MIR' (the classical method - not recommended) - use the scripts in the $MIR/install directory (this is how our binary releases are built) - follow http://www.astro.umd.edu/~teuben/miriad/cvs.html (the recommended way if you want to keep up with changes) Peter Teuben firstname.lastname@example.org February 2003
