AIPS HELP file for ASDMFILE in 31DEC22
As of Sun Feb 5 19:51:25 2023
Type: Adverb (string*64 array of 2)
Use: The concatenation of ASDMFILE(1) and ASDMFILE(2) with
any trailing blanks in ASDMFILE(1) omitted gives the full
path name to the top directory of the ASDM/BDF data set.
The code will also manage when ASDMFILE(1) begins with either
'$xxxx/' or 'xxxx:' where xxxx is a logical (environment)
variable. The filename sent to OBIT will be the translation of
$xxxx followed by a '/' followed by an remaining non-blank
characters in ASDMFILE(1) followed by ASDMFILE(2). Thus, if
the environment variables
ASDMFILE = '$LSJ/TCAL007/', 'longstuff
ASDMFILE = 'LSJ:TCAL007/', 'longstuff
ASDMFILE = '$LSJ7', 'longstuff
ASDMFILE = 'LSJ7:', 'longstuff
ASDMFILE = '$LSJ7/longstuff
ASDMFILE = 'LSJ7:longstuff
will all call OBIT with file name
since the two verbs below know that ASDMF(1)=ASDMF(2) is not
what you really mean. Note that the $ and the colon are
required and the / must appear with the $ when ASDMF(1) has
more charactrs than just the logical name.
