3.2.2 List of commands

Table 3.8 lists the ACIS commands according to the features called out in the Science Instrument Software Requirements Specification. Information which is sent using the discrete hardware status bits are preceded with the word ``Discrete-''. The remaining items are sent as command Packets, using the Serial Digital Command stream.

The definitive list of ACIS commands, including documentation and arguments, is contained in the ACIS IP&CL (Instrument Procedures and Command Language) description, MIT document number 36-53204, which is available on the Web at http://acis.mit.edu/sw.html.
