OTFIN: Task to read 12-m OTF data to index its contents
Input data file (sdd file)
BCOUNT 0.0 First included position
ECOUNT 0.0 Last included position
BIF 0.0 IF number 0 => all
DOCRT -3.0 132.0 > 0 -> use the terminal,
else use the line printer
> 72 => terminal width
Printer disk file to save
Use: Reads a single 12m OTF map to determine its contents. This task
will assist in preparing inputs to OTFUV, the task which
translates the 12-meter telescope "on-the-fly" spectral-line data
into AIPS format.
DATAIN......Input 12m sdd file (raw data file).
BCOUNT......First scan in OTF map which you want to display. 0 => all
ECOUNT......Last scan in OTF map which you want to display. 0 => all
BIF.........IF number to display. 0 => all
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
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.
OTFIN uses 4 different formats depending on the width.
If DOCRT > 114, one line/scan is used and if DOCRT > 128 a
more open format is used. DOCRT >= 80 gives a somewhat
better 2-line format than the one used for 72-character
wide terminals. "Wider is better"
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
