MERGECAL
Type:  Procedure
Use:   MERGECAL removes redundant calibration information from
       the gain curve (GC), system temperature (TY), and phase
       cal (PC) table loaded by FITLD. If FITLD is used to
       concatenate several files containing calibration transfer
       data these tables may contain many duplicate records that
       may cause other AIPS programs to fail. Run MERGECAL after
       loading the data to avoid this.
         Type RUN MERGECAL  to define this procedure if
       it is not already defined.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Main file name (name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Main file name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Main file name (seq. #)      0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk drive # of image.       0 => any.
  GCVER.......Version number of GC table to be fixed.
                                           0 => highest.
  TYVER.......Version number of TY table to be fixed.
                                           0 => highest.
  PCVER.......Version number of PC table to be fixed.
                                           0 => highest.
  OUTVERS.....Version number of output tables (same for all
              three table types).          0 => highest + 1.
  TIMETOL.....Tolerance for time comparisons in seconds.
              Records will not be merged if their times differ
              by more than this amount.
  BADDISK.....Disk drive numbers to avoid for scratch files.
