DESCRIPTION

Converts Hat Creek (RALINT) data on a UNIX system to MIRIAD format. The RALINT data are usually obtained by exploding a backup saveset. Giving no arguments at all will turn program in auto scanning mode... As said, HCCONV only runs on SUN Unix (not CRAY); on VMS use the program UVHAT. HCCONV will also repair any obvious synchronization problems that occasionally occur when the VMS Day80 changes, this will be announced, and you should not worry about it. HCCONV will also complain when RALINT variables have an inconsistent array length. It will then write the minimum length appropriate. This can happen when RALINT has written one sideband only, or in the case of shadowing.  

PARAMETERS

in
The Hat Creek data file(s). In no input given, it autoscans for files of the form '*.ddmmm'. Formally in UNIX wildcard notation: *.[0-9][0-9][a-z][a-z][a-z] Default: empty.
out
Name of the MIRIAD dataset to be created. If no name provided hcconv chooses a name. See the ``mode'' keyword for how this can be done. If multiple input files, and one output file, the input files are merged into one output file. Make sure the type of the input files (auto/cross correlation) are all the same. Default: empty, meaning auto-filename generation.
mode
Option denoting how the output filename is formed from the input filename. Options are: ``underscore'' (replaces the dot by an underscore), ``strip'' (strips name from the dot onwards). Default: ``underscore''
debug
Debug level - note: lots of output appears. It is better to redirect output to a logfile for this, or use it in a pipe to ``grep'' or ``more''. The higher the debug level, the more output may appear. Default: 0
