BULLETIN TFTR_SHOTS--Summary of Recent Shots

A useful bulletin to look at is TFTR_SHOTS.  An entry is made for each good shot when it is available for analysis on the cluster. If you look before noon, this bulletin has all today's and yesterday's shots; after noon, it has today's shots. The important information is in the header of each bulletin, so a ``directory'' list gives a one-line summary of the shots:

    $ BULLETIN TFTR_SHOTS    select board on the command line

    > 1                      to see parameter descriptions

    TIME:  time of peak ETOT when PBEAM or PICH is non-zero;
           otherwise the end of the plasma current flattop.
    IP:    the MB-IP-SL waveform in MW.
    FM#6:  Nel from FM-LD-06.
    PBEAM: from NB-BP-SL in MW.

To create a file with one line for each shot, do:
        bull>  file/all/nohead[/new] shots.lis
With the /new switch a new file is created; otherwise it appends to the file if it exists.

To keep abreast of shots while in your office, use ``set notify'' for TFTR_SHOTS.
