HELP SECTION

DTSUM
Type:  Task
Use:   Utility task to provide the user with a summary of the database.
       It will only work on data with an NX table attached. The output
       can be directed to the screen, a printer or a disc file.  The
       output can be limited to those data that pass the flag table and
       calibration routines.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input UV data file (name).     Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input UV data file (class).    Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input UV data file (seq. #).   0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Input UV data file disk #.  0 => any.
  SOURCES....Source name - ' ' => all.
  QUAL.......Only sources with a source qualifier number in the SU table
             matching QUAL will be used if QUAL is not -1.
  CALCODE....Sources may be selected on the basis of the calibrator code
             given in the SU table.
                  '    ' => any calibrator code selected
                  '*   ' => any non blank code (cal. only)
                  '-CAL' => blank codes only (no calibrators)
                  anything else = calibrator code to select.
             NB: The CALCODE test is applied in addition to the other
             tests, i.e. SOURCES and QUAL, in the selection of sources
             to process.
  TIMERANG...Time range of the data to be selected. In order: Start day,
             hour, min. sec, end day, hour, min. sec. Days relative to
             ref. date.
  SELBAND....Bandwidth of data to be selected. If more than one IF is
             present SELBAND is the width of the first IF required.
             Units = kHz. For data which contain multiple
             bandwidths/frequencies the task will insist that some form
             of selection be made by frequency or bandwidth.
  SELFREQ....Frequency of data to be selected. If more than one IF is
             present SELFREQ is the frequency of the first IF required.
             Units = MHz.
  FREQID.....Frequency identifier to select (you may determine which is
             applicable from the OPTYPE='SCAN' listing produced by
             LISTR). If either SELBAND or SELFREQ are set, their values
             override that of FREQID.  However, setting SELBAND and
             SELFREQ may result in an ambiguity.  In that case, the task
             will request that you use FREQID.
  SUBARRAY...Sub-array number to select. 0=>all which does not work
             when applying calibration and flags.
  DOCALIB....If true (>0), calibrate the data using information in the
             specified Cal (CL) table for multi-source or SN table for
             single-source data.  Also calibrate the weights unless
             DOCALIB > 99 (use this for old non-physical weights).
  GAINUSE....version number of the CL table to apply to multi-source
             files or the SN table for single source files.
             0 => highest.
  DOPOL......If > 0.5 then correct data for instrumental polarization
             as represented in the AN or PD table.  This correction is
             only useful if PCAL has been run or feed polarization
             parameters have been otherwise obtained.  See HELP DOPOL
             for available correction modes: 1 is normal, 2 and 3 are
             for VLBI.  1-3 use a PD table if available; 6, 7, 8 are
             the same but use the AN (continuum solution) even if a PD
             table is present.
  PDVER......PD table to apply if PCAL was run with SPECTRAL true and
             0 < DOPOL < 6.  <= 0 => highest.
  BLVER......Version number of the baseline based calibration (BL) table
             to apply. <0 => apply no BL table, 0 => highest.
  FLAGVER....specifies the version of the flagging table to be applied.
              0 => highest numbered table.
             <0 => no flagging to be applied.
  DOBAND.....If true (>0) then correct the data for the shape of the
             antenna bandpasses using the BP table specified by BPVER.
             The correction has five modes:
             (a) if DOBAND=1 all entries for an antenna in the table
             are averaged together before correcting the data.
             (b) if DOBAND=2 the entry nearest in time (including
             solution weights) is used to correct the data.
             (c) if DOBAND=3 the table entries are interpolated in
             time (using solution weights) and the data are then
             corrected.
             (d) if DOBAND=4 the entry nearest in time (ignoring
             solution weights) is used to correct the data.
             (e) if DOBAND=5 the table entries are interpolated in
             time (ignoring solution weights) and the data are then
             corrected.
             IMAGR uses DOBAND as the nearest integer; 0.1 is therefore
             "false".
  BPVER......Specifies the version of the BP table to be applied
                0 => highest numbered table.
               <0 => no bandpass correction to be applied.
  BCHAN......First channel number to include, 0=>1.  Channel numbers are
             1 relative as defined in the input data file.
  ECHAN......Highest channel number to to include in image,
             0 => max   The actual # of output channels will be
                  (ECHAN-BCHAN+1-NCHAV)/CHINC + 1
             Thus, ECHAN is the highest channel in the input averaged
             into the output and is the highest output channel only if
             BCHAN, NCHAV, and CHINC are 1.
  BIF........The lowest numbered IF to include.  Multiple IFs can be
             included in a bandwidth synthesis average.   0 => 1.
  EIF........The highest numbered IF to include. 0 =>highest.
             Note: not all data sets will have IFs.
  APARM......Control array
             APARM(1) = Print level
                =1 or 2 => print a condensed summary for the entire
                           run.
                =2 or 3 => print a condensed summary scan by scan
                           APARM(1) < 1 or > 3 => APARM(1) = 1.
             APARM(2) = number of digits to use in display per
                        baseline.  The actual display will add a blank
                        column between baselines.  Counts will be
                        divided by 10 ** (integer power) and rounded
                        if needed to avoid overflow beyond APARM(2)
                        digits.  APARM(2) < 2 or > 9 => APARM(2) = 4.
  DOCRT......False (<= 0) use the line printer if OUTPRINT = ' '
                   else write named OUTPRINT file only.
                   When OUTPRINT is not blank, DOCRT=-2 suppresses the
                   page-feed character on page headers and DOCRT=-3
                   suppresses page headers and most other header
                   information.  When OUTPRINT is blank, the line
                   printer will be used.  DTSUM now counts the lines
                   to be printed before printing any and asks for
                   permission to continue if the count > 500.
             True  (> 0) use the terminal interactively.  The task will
                   use the actual terminal width as a display limit
                   unless 72 < DOCRT < width.  In that case, the display
                   limit will be DOCRT characters.
  OUTPRINT...Disk file name in which to save the line printer output.
             ' ' => use scratch and print immediately for interactive
             jobs - batch jobs use OUTPRINT = 'PRTFIL:BATCHjjj.nnn'
             (jjj= job #, nnn = user #).  When OUTPRINT is not blank,
             multiple outputs are concatenated, and the file is not
             actually printed.
  BADDISK...Disk #'s to avoid for scratch files
