finish command

This page is part of the ING manual INS-DAS-29 Operations manual for UltraDAS.


finish terminates an observation started by run and similar commands. The observation is saved to disk as if the full integration-time had expired.

If the run was part of a multiple-exposure sequence (started by multrun etc.), finish only alters the current run. Other runs in the sequence carry on regardless.


   finish [<camera>]

Notes and caveats:

An observation that was finished may be distinguished by the fact that its final, recorded exposure time is less than its demanded exposure time. Otherwise, there is no difference.

The finish command completes quickly, and returns to the caller before the observation has finished. After finish, the original run command will take some time to read out and dispose of the observation.
