                                       frequency and IF

Task:  Apply single-dish calibration to the input data, writing a
       calibrated and flagged output data set.
  INNAME.....Input SD file name (name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input SD file name (class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input SD file name (seq. #).    0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input SD file.  0 => any.
  TIMERANG...Time range of the data to be copied. In order: Start day,
             hour, min. sec, end day, hour, min. sec. Days relative to
             reference date.
  STOKES.....The desired Stokes type of the output data:
             'HALF' (=RR,LL), 'FULL' (=RR,LL,RL,LR)
  BIF........First IF to copy. 0=>all.
  EIF........Highest IF to copy. 0=>all higher than BIF
  BCHAN......First channel to copy. 0=>all.
  ECHAN......Highest channel to copy. 0=>all higher than BIF
  SUBARRAY...Subarray number to copy. 0=>all.
  DOCALIB....If true (>0) then calibrate the data using information in
             the specified calibration (CS) table.
  GAINUSE....Version number of the CS table to apply.  0 => highest.
  FLAGVER....Specifies the version of the flagging table to be applied.
               0 => highest numbered table.
             < 0 => no flagging to be applied.
  OUTNAME....Output SD file name. Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output SD file name (class).    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output SD file name (seq. #).   0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output SD file. 0 => highest with
             space for the file.
  APARM......Control information:
             APARM(1) > 0 => all frequency channels in all IFs will be
                averaged in the output.  <= 0 => no averaging.
             APARM(3) > 0 => drop the subarray code from the visibility
  BADDISK....A list of disks on which scratch files are not to be
             placed.  This will not affect the output file.
