A few simple examples will show how SATAN works. It is assumed that SATAN is properly installed on your system.
satanWhen the command prompt (
Enter Command:) appears you might enter your commands, e.g.:
help * exitThis little command sequence lists all available commands, then exits. You will be prompted for confirmation and whether you like a protocol of your session. A protocol comprises all commands issued in a session plus informational output like spectrum window contents etc. A protocol can be re-used as a command list for the next session.
Here's another example, showing how to retrieve and display basic data elements like analyzers (which essentially are spectra).
afetch gamma tutor / run(*) dump(*) lib($SATAN/TUTOR/rs66.tutorial) display gamma tutor dexpand 1400 1800 dwsum 1475 1500 dcopy p65gps exitThe commands do:
p65gps(please insert your own favorite printer here) of what you see on the screen.
tut fit tut fleg tut fposThe respective command lists will be called and executed.
