The miriad shell is a command-line front-end to run Miriad tasks. The commands that you give it are somewhat AIPS-like. Unrecognised commands are passed to the host command interpreter, so you can use the normal host commands within the shell (with occasional caveats).

The following are the recognised commands:

set Set or show a keyword. = Set a keyword. unset [ ... ] Unset keyword(s). er Line-edit a keyword value. task [] Set/show default task. inp [] Show settings of keywords to task. go [-b] [] Run a task. help [] [-k key] Help on a task or topic. view [] Edit keyword file for task. save/load [file] Save/load global keyword file. tget/tput [-l] [] Save/load task keyword file. setenv env value Set environment variable. unsetenv env Unset environment variable. cd

Change and/or show current directory source Read commands from exit Exit miriad and save variables. quit Exit miriad and do not save variables.
