With LIST in principle all catalogue keywords can be listed, but the default setting lists only: Position, Object name, Telescope, Instrument, Detector and Date. You get that listing by simply typing:
without further qualifications. If you want other information displayed, either change the default setting by executing DEFAULT LIST="...", or by specifying the items wanted in the list command itself:
LIST OBJECT, POSITION, TEL, INI, DET, DATE, EXPO
Note that on a VDU the linewidth is truncated at 80 characters; a too long line on the printer will be split over several pages, unless the TRUNCATE qualifier is given. In the previous example, for instance, you will find that the telescope field is rather wide (12 positions), and that for ING data a width of 4 would be sufficient. This can be established by qualifying the field item with /WIDTH=n. Further, if a listing is to be printed on the lineprinter, or output via E-mail, a list-file has to be created first with the FILE qualifier, e.g. :
LIST/FILE/TRUNCATE OBJECT, POSITION, TEL/WID=4, INI, DET, DATE, EXPO ,
followed by PRINT to signal that the list-file is an output file. The actual submission to the print or mail queues is done with the SPOOL command, or on EXIT. For more information about changing formats among other things, the reader is referred to section and to the HELP facility, which can be entered by typing: LIST ? .
