[AIPS] Patches to AIPS 31DEC18 [NRAO]

This page most recently updated on $Date: 2021/01/20 22:23:09 $ (UT)


You will find patches to known bugs in 31DEC20 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 31DEC20 "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. SPLIT and CLIP would always say that is not calibrating anything despite the adverbs. 2021-01-20
  2. 2021-??-??

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


Task:
SPLIT,
Summary: SPLAT, and CLIP initially open the uv data file with all calibration turned off. They then re-open the data set with the user's specified calibration. The recently added message saying what calibrations are and are not being done then said that no calibrations were being done. This has been fixed so that the initial call does not produce messages which then appear correctly with a subsequent call.
