Since the start-up of the upgraded instrument in July 2011, Pearl diffraction data are now processed and visualised using the Mantid software package, and structure analysis and refinement carried out using GSAS.
Files in a format suitable for input to Fullprof and Topas can also be provided.
The previous VMS-based routines are still available where required.
To focus an existing raw file in transverse mode type the following in the PEARL VMS window:
prl_all_pc13t 'run number' i.e prl_all_pc13t 63456 (hit return until the command prompt is reached)
a less verbose option may be available by typing prl_all 'run number'.
