Takes an exposure and transfers the data into the Detector Memory System for inspection, but not to the system computer.

Format: GLANCE <channel> <time>

Channel: The name of the data-acquisition channel to be used.

Time: The exposure time in seconds.

Examples: GLANCE RED ARC 5

Queuable: Yes.

Comments: This command is intended for a quick look at the data, to verify (for example) that the intensity level is as expected before carrying out a proper exposure. The data will be over-written when the next exposure is carried out on the same data-acquisition channel. To save the data, use the keep command.
