Paper Abstract

Modern IR spectrometers must be equipped with software well suited to a wide range of purposes starting from the low level controls and going through acquisition, handling and fast quick-look of data. Such a complex software structure can be conveniently managed by means of dedicated GUIs which allow one to access the system at different levels: from the lowest (cryogenic controls) to the highest (data acquisition and quick-look). We will briefly describe the structure of this software, whose original characteristics is in the use of SQLite. We will also show a couple of results from our quick-look procedure based on customized DS9 and IRAF. The software architecture, that we present here, is general and can be adapted to any astronomical instruments. We have specifically implemented and tested it on GIANO spectrometer
