Peter Teuben (AIPS++)
AIPS++ is an ambitious project, largely written in
and using modern programming tools, to process (primarely radio) astronomical
This page is intended as a repository of documents for my collegues,
before these documents become "cast in stone". So, most of what you
see here is under development or available somewhere in
(or jump to:
Local (/aips++) Released
web site. It should most certainly not be referred to.
New 2004 links:
- Here's my own FAQ and cheat sheet for AIPS++
- Bug Tracking (DDTs):
- The BIMA AIPS++ specifications are intended
to enumerate the requirements of BIMA (specifically those that deal
with interferometry, but excluding image analysis and processing) within
the AIPS++ project. (this document needs updates)
- I'm mostly working on the
bimafiller, but please, don't run
mktree -s when your sourcecode isn't checked in yet. As part of
this effort the miriad uvio program will have a scanning option
to verify the internal consistency of the dataset (it turns out this
is needed given the way how the bimafiller (will) work.
May 2000: Since
MS v2 has now been cast in stone, bimafiller is being upgraded
to output this format. At the same time the miriad library will need
a few minor updates too.

A Gentle Introduction to AIPS++ for BIMA users
- The is a somewhat outdated
BIMA cookbook for BIMA, but you should consult various
cookbook and introductory documents that are now available in the
standard AIPS++ documentation sections.
- redhat 7.2 installation notes (august 2001)
- [OLD NOTES] AIPS++ installation: my personal experiences. We
are running it on a sun4sol_gnu architecture, with the
Solaris 2.5 operating system. You can browse our
makedefs file (it often takes a few tries to get
this file right).
- My laptop redhat62 makedefs file, which
took some time to put together....
- We keep a local UMD ftp mirror with the latest release, and perhaps
some supporting utilities that the beta release may not
- An evolving document on DDQ
(dynamic tablebrowser), currently
in NEMO. Together with
xgobi this should give a very nice way to browse tabular
data. Nicest would be to combine both, but we're working on that
- LinkWinds (lw)
is a very nice program to browse image data, and in some areas
AipsView program. I've been quite impressed with lw, and we
maintain a local version.
- Our collegues at CERN have developed a system
called ROOT which on the
lower levels parallels many of the things AIPS++ addresses.
- Here are my aips++ goodies:
- aipsds9, simply "include aipsds9.g" and
send an image to the DS9 server using e.g. "ds9('map8.psf') from
the glish shell.
