HELP SECTION

RLCOR
Task:  This task will copy a uv-data set applying a right-left phase
       correction to as many as 20 IFs.  Basically, this allows the
       CLCOR operation POLR to be applied to single-source files,

       The PCAL solutions (if any) in the appropriate AN table will be
       adjusted as is done by CLCOR.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input UV file name (name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input UV file name (class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input UV file name (seq. #).    0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input UV file.  0 => any.
  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 copy. 0=>all.
  BIF........First IF to include.  0 -> 1.
  EIF........Last IF to include.   0 -> max.
  OUTNAME....Output UV file name (name).     Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output UV file name (class).    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output UV file name (seq. #).   0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output UV file. 0 => highest with space
             for the file.
  FQCENTER,...>= 0 => Change frequency axis reference pixel to
                      Nchan / 2 + 1
              else => do not change reference pixel
  CLCORPRM...Right-Left phase difference in degrees to be applied
             to IF number BIF, BIF+1, BIF+2, ..., EIF (as many as 20
             may be specified).  If there are more than 20 IFs, the
             task will have to be run more than once, using the output
             of the previous pass as input to the current pass.
