Prism is a graphical user interface (GUI) application for file browsing in CIAO. It lists the extensions of a file and allows the user to view the header and data of each block. Prism also offers many other analysis features: interactive plots of column data (including plotting errors and histograms), viewing of simple ASCII files, display of images through ds9, and table/header editing capabilities. The Introduction to Prism thread has details on its use and options.
