How do I know what version of CIAO is installed?
The ciaover command displays the installed CIAO packages and the format indicates whether CIAO was installed with ciao-install or conda.
The installed CIAO packages and their version are listed
unix% ciaover # packages in environment at /export/miniconda/envs/ciao-4.15: # # Name Version Build Channel ciao 4.15.1 py310h50a7cbf_0 https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao ciao-contrib 4.15.1 py_1 https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao ds9 8.4.1 0 https://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/conda/ciao sherpa 4.15.0 pypi_0 pypi System information: Linux <... the output of the uname -a command ...>
The -v flag does not change the output for the conda installation.
The ciaover output looks like
unix% ciaover CIAO configuration is complete... CIAO 4.15 Monday, November 21, 2022 bindir : /soft/ciao-4.15/bin CALDB : 4.10.2
and it has a verbose form which lists the component packages too, as well as information on the machine:
unix% ciaover -v The current environment is configured for: CIAO : CIAO 4.15 Monday, November 21, 2022 Tools : Package release 1 Monday, November 21, 2022 Sherpa : Package release 2 Wednesday, January 18, 2023 Obsvis : Package release 1 Monday, November 21, 2022 Core : Package release 2 Wednesday, January 18, 2023 Contrib : Package release 1 Tuesday, January 24, 2023 bindir : /soft/ciao-4.15/bin Python path : /soft/ciao-4.15/ots/bin CALDB : 4.10.2 CIAO Installation: Linux System information: Linux is.awesome.edu 3.10.0-1062.12.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Feb 4 23:02:59 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Please include the output of ciaover -v as text (not as a screen shot of your terminal) when reporting a problem or question to the CXC Helpdesk, as this information can often help us pinpoint the problem (and will be one of the first things we ask you for in response to your question).
