[AIPS] Patches to AIPS 31DEC18 [NRAO]

This page most recently updated on $Date: 2019/02/13 23:55:53 $ (UT)


You will find patches to known bugs in 31DEC18 here.

With previous releases, we did not change the frozen release tar ball; user sites were required to download the text files and do any compilations themselves. But, beginning with 31DEC04, we provide binary releases for which user sites are not required to have compilers. Therefore, we have reversed our policy. These patches have been applied to the official code of 31DEC18 and may be downloaded using a 31DEC18 "Midnight Job". Any tarball taken after the change date listed below will already have the patches applied. Of course, you may still download and compile the files as before.

The following is a list of pointers to the different patches in this document.

  1. VBCAL did not write the output data set. 2019-01-18
  2. TYCOP and other tasks had the old number of columns for the SY table. 2019-02-13
  3. 2019-??-??

The remainder of this document is comprised of the patch descriptions pointed to by the above references.
