Useful Files and Software

* Control Interface Module for Arecibo (CIMA) This site contains a lot of detailed information on the user interface used for observations with the Arecibo radiotelescope.

* Free software at Arecibo - some potentially useful programs.

* SIGPROC - A good and very easy-to-use general pulsar package. Created and maintained by Duncan Lorimer, at Arecibo the executables are in: /home/pulsar/bin/ and /home/pulsar/bin/linux.

* PSRCHIVE - The object Oriented Pulsar Software. Another excellent pulsar package, worth having for some specialized applications (pulsar timing!). At Arecibo, there is an updated version running on the general file system (in /home/pulsar/bin/) and in ASP. Created and maintained mostly by the Swinburne Pulsar Group

* PRESTO - An excellent pulsar package, a bit more difficult to install (because of its heavy use of python) but worth having for some specialized applications (pulsar searching!). Created and maintained by Scott Ransom. At Arecibo, the executables are in /home/pulsar/presto/bin/.

* TEMPO - The reference timing package - see /home/pulsar/tempo11/tempo.

* massf2 - A program that estimates companion masses and relativistic orbital parameters from a given pulsar mass, orbital inclination and orbital parameters. Also makes mass-mass diagrams and predicts GR parameters. Written by Paulo Freire, its present path is: /home/pfreire/bin/massf2.

* NE2001 - Convert pulsar DMs to distances and vice-versa.

* All the files in /share/wappsrc/utility/. foldfft transforms WAPP folded lags data to folded spectral data, alfasplit separates the two beams in ALFA WAPP data, asciidump allows you to look at the full header of a WAPP file.

* time_ao.dat - Latest clock correction files for the Arecibo Observatory.

* ut1.dat - Earth rotation files (should include the latest IAU bulletin B).

* NASA's coordinate conversion
