gpboot - Correct the gains table of a visibility data-set.
GpBoot is a MIRIAD program which corrects a visibility data-set's
GpBoot works by comparing the amplitudes in the gain table of one
data-set with those of another. The gains are assumed to differ
by a constant factor. It is assumed that the
instrumental gain and atmospheric attenuation of the two data-sets
were the same, and so the difference in gain is due to an
arbitrary or incorrect flux being specified when initially
determining the gains.
The input visibility file, containing the gain file to correct.
The gains are assumed to be out by a constant factor.
This is a visibility data-set, which is assumed to contain a
gain table which scales the data to absolute flux units.
Normal uv-selection parameter. This selects the gains in the
``vis'' that are compared against the ``cal'' gains (note that
all the ``cal'' gains are involved in the comparison). Currently
ONLY time and antenna selection are permitted. You will use
this parameter to select which data the instrumental/atmospheric
amplitude gains for ``vis'' are comparable to the observation in
