4th Chandra/CIAO Workshop Hands-on Session
- There are 12 workstations available -- DEMO1, DEMO2, ... DEMO12. With 25 people registered for the workshop, everyone will need to work in pairs.
- Users should log in as cxcguestx where x is the machine you are on; i.e. the user on DEMO1 is cxcguest1 ... DEMO2 is cxcguest2. The passwords will be revealed Monday afternoon.
All the accounts are already set up to run CIAO2.2.1.
On every window where you expect to run CIAO, you should simply
The warning is issued because CIAO 2.2.1 has not been fully tested in Solaris v2.8, which this machine is running.

Some useful checks:

The workspace is in /data/ciao_demo/. 15 subdirectories
have been created called cxcguest1 through cxcguest15; please work
in the one relative to your machine. A link to this location
has been set up in the home directory of each account:
unix% pwd /home/cxcguest1 unix% cd workshop/ unix% pwd /data/ciao_demo/cxcguest1
Chandra data used in the analysis threads can be found in
/data/ciao_demo/threads/. A link to this location has been
set up from the workspace:
The CIAO tools accept paths as part of the input file names, so it is not necessary to copy all the data to your working directory. You may also set up symbolic links to access the data.

We have already downloaded all the CIAO scripts.
This means that they can be called from the command line in the same manner as the CIAO tools:
If a script is missing or seems outdated, it may be downloaded from http://cxc.harvard.edu/ciao/download_scripts.html
