Getting Started in CASA
See the CASA Primer.
Once installed, you can start CASA using the command "casapy"

# From within CASA tasklist()

Getting Help on a Command

# From within CASA help clean
This method is OK, and perhaps the following method is better.
# From within CASA pdoc clean
- When you started CASA, it gave you a lot of useful information. But now you've been mucking around for a while, and that info is lost. How do you get it back? Just rerun the startup screen.
