MOVE: Task to copy or move data from one user/disk to another
INNAME Input name(name).
INCLASS Input name(class).
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Input name(seq. #). 0=>high
INDISK Input disk drive #. 0=>any
USERID 1.0 46655.0 Output User ID.
OUTNAME Output name(name).
OUTCLASS Output name(class).
OUTSEQ -1.0 9999.0 Output name(seq. #).
0 => highest unique
-1 => use INSEQ
OUTDISK Output image disk drive #
0 => highest with room
IGNORED on 'MOVE'
OPCODE 'MOVE' move to other user
deleting login user's copy
'DUPL' copy allowing file
name duplicates (!!!)
'COPD' copy deleting input
duplicate names allowed
else copy to other user/disk
Use: MOVE will copy an image or uv data set from the login user
number to another user number. The data can be renamed to
that other user via file renaming (OUTDISK is ignored) or
it can be copied. In the former case, the data files
disappear from the catalog of the login user. MOVE may also
be used to simply copy a data set to another disk for the
INNAME......Input name of image(name). Standard defaults.
INCLASS.....Input name of image(class). Standard defaults.
INSEQ.......Input name of image(seq. #). 0 => highest.
INDISK......Disk drive # of image. 0 => any.
USERID......User ID of NEW owner of image or uv data set.
OUTNAME.....Output name of image(name). ' ' => INNAME
OUTCLASS....Output name of image(class). ' ' => INCLASS
OUTSEQ......Output name of image(seq. #). < 0 => INSEQ
0 => highest current + 1
OUTDISK.....Disk drive # of Output image. 0 => highest with
space. Ignored when OPCODE = 'MOVE'.
OPCODE......'MOVE' => rename the files on the current disk to
the new user, deleting from current user. Since a
rename is used OUTDISK must be INDISK. If it isn't a
warning is iisued and a copy done.
'DUPL' => does a copy and allows a violation of AIPS'
rules that a file name must be unique across all
disks. The output file name must be unique on
OUTDISK but the other disks are not checked. Use
this when moving data from an old disk to a new one
where you want to keep the old names and plan to stop
using the old disk when the MOVE(s) are done.
'COPD' => copy the file, allowing duplicate names as
above but delete the input after a successful copy.
Anything else => copy the catalog entry's files to a
uniquely named output catalog entry.
