DOPOL
Type: Adverb  (Scalar)
Use:  Standard data calibration adverb.  If > 0 then the uv-data will be
      corrected for the instrumental polarization response at each
      antenna, as stored in the antenna (AN) table. The following
      correction modes are available:
        (1) Apply the standard polarization and parallactic angle
            corrections. For the linear D-term approx., only first-order
            terms are retained.
      For 'VLBI' polarization solutions, two further modes are possible:
        (2) If DOPOL = 2, include 2nd order D-term coefficients when
            using the linear D-term approximation, and correct both
            parallel- and cross-hand data. Use approximations for
            missing polarization data when computing the correction
            matrices.
        (3) If DOPOL = 3, do as in (2), but apply rigorous flagging,
            excluding any output visibility data which have ANY missing
            polarization correlation pairs.
      To avoid use of a PD table when present, set DOPOL = 6, 7, or 8
      to get the action of 1, 2, or 3 with the AN file polarizations
      rather than the PD (spectral) polarizations.
Null value:  false (0) => do no polarization calibration .
