How do I know what version of CIAO is installed? [New]


The ciaover command displays the installed CIAO packages and the format indicates whether CIAO was installed with ciao-install or conda.

Example: conda

The installed CIAO packages and their version are listed

unix% ciaover
#
# Name                    Version                   Build  Channel
ciao                      4.12.0           py37h04863e7_0    https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao
ciao-contrib              4.12.0                     py_1    https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao
ds9                       8.1                           1    https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao
sherpa                    4.12.0           py37h04863e7_0    https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao

System information:
Linux <... the output of the uname -a command ...>

The -v flag does not change the output for the conda installation.

Example: ciao-install

The ciaover output looks like

unix% ciaover
CIAO 4.12 Monday, November 25, 2019
  bindir      : /soft/ciao-4.12/bin
  CALDB       : 4.9.0

and it has a verbose form which lists the component packages too, as well as information on the machine:

unix% ciaover -v
ciaover -v
The current environment is configured for:
  CIAO        : CIAO 4.12 Monday, November 25, 2019
  Tools       : Package release 1  Monday, November 25, 2019
  Sherpa      : Package release 1  Monday, November 25, 2019
  Prism       : Package release 1  Monday, November 25, 2019
  Obsvis      : Package release 1  Monday, November 25, 2019
  Core        : Package release 1  Monday, November 25, 2019
  Graphics    : Package release 1  Friday, December 6, 2019
  Contrib     : Package release 1  Friday, November 22, 2019
  bindir      : /soft/ciao-4.12/bin
  Python path : /soft/ciao-4.12/ots/bin
  CALDB       : 4.9.0

CIAO Installation: Linux
System information:
Linux <... the output of the uname -a command ...>

Please include the output of ciaover -v as text (not as a screen shot of your terminal) when reporting a problem or question to the CXC Helpdesk, as this information can often help us pinpoint the problem (and will be one of the first things we ask you for in response to your question).
