[AIPS] Patches to AIPS 31DEC18 [NRAO]

This page most recently updated on $Date: 2020/01/27 23:39:00 $ (UT)


You will find patches to known bugs in 31DEC19 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 31DEC19 and may be downloaded using a 31DEC19 "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. BPASS had a bad call sequence causing aborts.2020-01-22
  2. FACSET did not include all the flux of standard calibration source models. 2020-01-27
  3. 2020-??-??

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


Task:
BPASS
Summary: had a single call sequence to a Q routine that did not include APCORE causing the task to abort.
Files:
/31DEC19/Q/PGM/NOTST/BPASS.FOR
Fix:
  1. Fetch the file listed above and place it in the corresponding area ($QPGNOT) on your system.
  2. COMLNK $QPGNOT/BPASS

Task:
FACSET
Summary: is a routine used by most calibration applying tasks. It scales the calibrator flux in the model to that of the source table, but only the flux within a specified radius. The radii were all too small, causing flux to be omitted from some models.
Files:
/31DEC19/APL/SUB/NOTST/FACSET.FOR
/31DEC19/APL/SUB/NOTST/FACSET.SRT
Fix:
  1. Fetch the files listed above and place them in the corresponding areas ($APLNOT and a work area) on your system.
  2. COMRPL $APLNOT/FACSET
  3. source FACSET.SRT
