0.1.9 caltabconvert

Requires:

Synopsis
Convert old-style caltables into new-style caltables.

Description

This task converts old-style (up to CASA 3.3.0) caltables into new-style (CASA 3.4.0 and later) caltables. It is provided as a convenience and is strictly temporary. The information transferred should be enough for most calibration purposes. BPOLY and GSPLINE versions are not supported. Only simple bugs will be fixed. If there are other issues, it is suggested that a new-style caltable be created directly.

Example

 
    This task converts old-style (up to CASA 3.3.0) caltables into new-style  
    (CASA 3.4.0 and later) caltables. It is provided as a convenience and  
    is strictly temporary. The information transferred should be enough  
    for most calibration purposes. BPOLY and GSPLINE versions are not  
    supported. Only simple bugs will be fixed. If there are other issues,  
    it is suggested that a new-style caltable be created directly.  
 
    Arguments:  
 
    caltabold -- Name of the old-style caltable.  
    default: none  
    example: caltabold=’gronk.g0’  
 
    vis -- Name of the visibility file (MS) associated with the old-style  
        caltable.  
    default: none  
    example: vis=’blurp.ms’  
 
    ptype -- Type of data in the new-format caltable.  
    default: "complex"; allowed values: "complex" or "float"  
    example: ptype="complex"  
 
    NB: The old-style caltables do not have this information, so it is  
    imperative that users get it correct.  "complex" refers to caltables that  
    have complex gains (e.g., produced by gaincal, bpcal, etc.).  "float" refers  
    to caltables that real numbers such as delays (e.g., produced by gencal).  
 
    caltabnew -- Name of the new-style caltable.  
    default: "" --> the suffix ".new" is appended to the name of the old-style  
        caltable  
    example: caltabold=’gronk_new.g0’
