Burst Response Analysis in Real-time

If idlpacman recognizes the image under analysis as an image taken in response to a realtime burst alert (from the three letter acronym in the file name - see Appendix A), it performs additional operations to those outlined in the previous section. This procedure is still evolving, but currently involves compiling match structures, writing short binary files with information about sources of interest near the burst location, and cropped JPEG images of the region. These small files are updated after every ten images, and copied back to for remote perusal by interested users.
