VLBCD: Task which reads total power information
INNAME Input UV file name (name)
INCLASS Input UV file name (class)
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Input UV file name (seq. #)
INDISK 0.0 9.0 Input UV file disk unit #
CALIN Text file name.
SUBARRAY Subarray number (0=>1)
OUTVERS 0.0 46655.0 Output CD table, 0=>new table
If selected table exists, the
new data are added to it.
BADDISK Disks to avoid for scratch
Task: This task reads an ascii file containing VLBA calibration
information. The usual file for this data is found at
where this example is for project TA035I observed in
The UV data set must exist and is used to convert antenna
names to antenna numbers.
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.
CALIN......Calibration text file
SUBARRAY...Subarray number 0 => 1
OUTVERS....Desired output CD table. Normally, no CD table
exists and this task creates version 1. It is not
good to add data unless CALIN contains new antennas.
BADDISK....The disk numbers to avoid for scratch files (sorting
The task looks for a line beginning with "TSYS" followed by the
antenna name. It then expects a blank comment line ("!") and
a second comment line with the antenna name, project name, first
source name, and time range. This is followed by two times the
number of IFs lines giving the noise tube values associated with
the two p[olarizations and each IF. The IFs are given by the
center frequency in the Spectral Window (IF).
