IR Instrument Control System


Using the IR Command Line.

The keyboard package used by the IR user interface is GNU readline. This package allows history recall and command line editing. Moving between and within lines uses the arrow keys or a sequence of keystrokes as given below. A C-char == control-char, that is hold down the control key and type the character. A M-char == meta-char == Esc char, that is type the Escape key followed by the character key.

Here are the most useful key sequences.

Most prompts and commands have completion setup to reflect the possible inputs.
