Making the CD covers: run cdlabelgen

Write a file with the text you want to appear at the back of the CD. Let's call it backofcd.txt. This should describe the data.

emacs backofcd.txt

Find a nice Postscript picture for the front cover. For example, you can make a ps file from one of the images from the night before, using ds9 for example. Alternatively, you can download an image from the web and transform it to postscript with gimp or xv. For this example I have made an image /scratch/guest/CDlabels/3.6image.ps.

cd /scratch/guest/CDlabels/

Execute (as an example):

./cdlabelgen -c "ESO 3.6 observations 66.B-0146(A) Dec 2000" -s "Raw files night 1 (of 3)" -e 3.6image.ps -S 0.4 -d "30-31/12/2000" -f backofcd.txt -o coverexample.ps

Adjust the scale of the postscript image using the -S flag. Print out coverexample.ps (shown in Fig.1). That's it!
