FIND performs a search in the input directory to build a new index,
according to selection criteria defined by one or more of the following
options. The index list (as desribed in the help for command MIRA\LIST).
Each option accepts more than one argument.
NEW: FIND is not anymore a prerequisite for the MIRA\SCAN command. In case o
ambiguous scan numbers, MIRA\SCAN will implicitely take the last scan found
(i.e. the most recent one).
NOTE: if you use MIRA\FIND together with a large data archive, you can
accelerate the search by either not using FIND at all or by specifying at le
/BACKEND name Searches for data from backend name.
/FRONTEND receiver Searches for data from a given receiver.
/LINE transition Search for data of spectral line transition.
/OBSERVED startDate [endDate] Searches for data observed between startDate
and endDate. If endDate is not specied, looks
only for data observed the day of startDate.
Date format is YYYY-MM-DD (e.g. 2005-09-29).
/PROCEDURE procedure Searches for data of a given observing
procedure (e.g. pointing, focus, onOff,
/SCAN i1 [i2] Searches for data from scans i1 to i2 (or only
scan i1 if i2 not specified).
/SOURCE object Searches for data from source object.
/TELESCOPE antenna Searches for data from telescope antenna.
/NEW Searches for new data written to the input
directory and appends them to the existing
index list. If no new data are found,
the current index list remains unchanged. For
online data processing at the telescope.
/SWITCHMOD switch Searches for observations done with switchmode
switch (e.g. wobbler, beamSwitching).
/SILENT Loads the observations corresponding to the se
criteria into the index list, without issuing
/WHAT List the selection currently used.
/PROJECT xxx-yy Selects only data from project xxx-yy.
/STAT Writes the total integration time of all
observations in the current index list into
output file .stat (mainly for observing pool
