VLBSY: 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 SY table, 0=>new table
If selected table exists, the
new data are added to it.
DOKEEP -1.0 1.0 > 0 -> keep records which are
not in any scan
BADDISK Disks to avoid for scratch
Task: This task reads an ascii file containing total power
information . It reads the modern DiFX created file which
has a simple format, converting it to an SY table.
Switched power data live in
and subdirectories thereof if older than x (where x is
manually cleaning up)
The DiFX file(s) may consist of a single file, with the
multiple initial files simply concatenated. Or they may
consist of a file for each antenna. In that case the file
names must end in an underscore followed by the 2-character
antenna name. Specify CALIN up to and including the underscore.
The UV data set must exist and is used to convert antenna
names to antenna numbers and times to source and FQID numbers.
The code will adopt sensible defaults if the input data set is
not specific to the current SY table.
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......Total power text file.
If the name ends in an _ (underscore) the the files with
BR, FD, HN, ... SC will be read in order and having a
file missing will generate a warning but not a failure.
SUBARRAY...Subarray number 0 => 1
OUTVERS....Desired output SY table.
0 means create a new SY table under following number.
If selected table exists, the new data added to it
DOKEEP.....> 0 => keep all records found even if they do not appear
in any of the scans in the index (NX) table. The
source number on such records is 0.
<= 0 => omit such records from the PC table.
BADDISK....The disk numbers to avoid for scratch files (sorting
