VLALIST: Procedure to run LISTR for VLA calibration.
Use RUN VLAPROCS first!!!
INNAME UV file name (name)
INCLASS UV file name (class)
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 UV file name (seq. #)
INDISK 0.0 9.0 UV file disk drive #
CALCODE Calibrator code '*'=>all cal.
TIMERANG Time range to use.
ANTENNAS Antennas to solve for. 0=all
FREQID Unique frequency code
OUTPRINT Printer disk file to save
Procedure: This procedure is designed to print the SN table
produced by CALIB using LISTR.
Before attempting to use VLACALIB the RUN file
VLAPROCS must be run to define the adverbs used and to
read in the procedure. This is done by:
and only needs be done once.
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.
CALCODE....Calibrators may be selected on the basis of the
' ' => 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. CALSOUR and QUAL, in the
selection of sources for which to determine
TIMERANG...Time range of the data to be used. In order:
Start day, hour, min. sec,
end day, hour, min. sec. Days relative to ref.
ANTENNAS...A list of the antennas to have solutions
determined. If any number is negative then all
antennas listed are NOT to be used to determine
solutions and all others are. All 0 => use all.
FREQID.....Frequency selection. Defaults to 1. This is what
is required in most continuum cases.
OUTPRINT...Disk file name in which to save output. ' ' => print
to printer - When OUTPRINT is not blank, outputs are
printed to a file. Multiple uses of the same
VLALIST: Procedure to run LISTR with fewer inputs to
print the gains in an SN table.
