6.2. SAOimage

Saoimage is an X-windows based image display server originally developed by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. It provides a large selection of options for zooming, panning, scaling, coloring, pixel readback, display blinking, and region specifications. User interactions are usually performed with the mouse. The version of saoimage included with the VMS/IRAF V2.10 distribution is 1.07; newer versions may be available from the IRAF archives. You must have saoimage running, although it can be iconified, before attempting to write to it. More information may be found in the 0readme file in the [IRAF.VMS.X11] directory.
