Continuum polarimetry at Parkes

Here, and in the associated subversion repository, resides software for processing polarimetry data taken at Parkes.

Some basics

  • Trac - This wiki specialised to provide tools useful for managing or tracking a project. The buttons along the top lead to useful functions.

Using the repository

  1. We have set up the svn repository with the following structure:
    trunk/
               Darwin/
                          bin/
                          Makefile
               Linux/
                          bin/
                          Makefile
               scripts/
               src/
               SunOS/
                          bin/
                          Makefile
               Makefile
    
    • All the FORTRAN source is in src/.
    • The main Makefile is in the top (trunk) directory.
    • The architecture directories (Darwin, Linux, SunOS) contain supplementary Makefiles that set architecture-specific symbols and are used when you invoke the main trunk/Makefile, and bin/ directories to receive the binaries.
  2. The URL for the repository is https://svn.atnf.csiro.au/parkespol In a browser that address will bring you to this page. In svn that address will give access to the repository.
  3. A typical cycle for changing the code is:
    • Make your own personal working version of the whole tree
       svn checkout   https://svn.atnf.csiro.au/parkespol myWorking/
      
    • make changes, and test compilation and execution
    • Commit changes to the repository. Describe changes in the log required by the svn commit command.
        svn commit https://svn.atnf.csiro.au/parkespol
