MIRIAD is a radio astronomy data reduction package. This is the MIRIAD version build by CSIRO/ATNF.
You can run this like this:
docker run -it -v `pwd`:/data miriad/miriad <cmd> <args>
where <cmd> is a Miriad command with arguments <args>.
Make this easier by setting:
alias d='docker run -it -v `pwd`:/data miriad/miriad'
after which you can run all the normal miriad commands like, e.g.,:
d fits in=image.fits out=image.map op=xyin
If you want to run the interactive Miriad shell:
The command mounts the current directory in the image as /data. On Macs this only works when started in /Users.
Use just the command:
to get a command prompt in /data so you can run scripts etc.
No X server is included, so to look at the data make png or ps plots and view the images on the host machine.
