|AHELP for CIAO 4.5||
Download and install CIAO, CALDB, and the contributed script files
The ciao-install script is designed to simplify and automate the installation and upgrade of the CIAO software and of the Chandra Calibration DataBase (CALDB).
ciao-install FTPs the selected files to your computer, verifies them via md5sum, and unpacks them. The script configures CIAO, sets up the command-line ahelp system, and (optionally) runs the CIAO smoke tests.
Customize the ciao-install script for your system on the CIAO Download page.
For additional information on the script and available command-line options, refer to the README file.
