This document describes how to use the IUEDAC software documentation
search page. It requires however that the user know
the name of the program.
If the program name isn't known see the
IUEDAC User's Guide
Entering a program name and clicking the submit form button will
execute a Perl script which will display the procedure
prolog; the primary documentation source for a specific IUEDAC IDL
The name of the desired program.
As an example, entering the name 'iuespec' (without quotes) will display
the documentation on iuespec, the program used to extract data from the
IUESIPS extracted spectral files.
Wildcards are allowed in the program name. For example, entering
the name 'gex*' will return the documentation on programs GEX1, GEX2,
and GEXCAL. Note there are over 450 IUEDAC programs, so entering '*'
is not recommended.
The IUEDAC procedure prologs used a common set of subheadings,
which are listed under the keyword box. Clicking
on one of the subheadings will display only that portion of the
prolog. This can be useful for determining the latest modifcations date
(i.e., by selecting 'modification history', or to produce a summary of
IUEDAC programs (e.g., selecting 'purpose' for the keyword and
'iue*' for programs). Note some routines may not have all the listed
subheadings. Use the 'all' option to see everything.
