DESCRIPTION

PSRPLT plots pulsar visibility data as a function of bin number. The normal display is a pulse profile (bin vs real part of the average visibility), but it can also produce a plot against frequency.  

PARAMETERS

vis
The name of the input uv data sets. Several can be given. No default.
stokes
The Stokes/polarisation parameters to plot. The default is total intensity (stokes=i).
line
The normal line-type specification. See the help on "line" for more information. The default is all channels.
select
The normal uv selection commands. The default is copy everything. See the help on "select" for more information.
device
Normal PGPLOT plotting device specification. No default.
offset
The offset (in arcsec) to shift the uv data. The sign convention is the same as the rest of Miriad. See the help on "offset" for more information. The default is no shift.
axis
This determines the x- and y-axes of the plot. At the moment, the only possibility for the x-axis is:
  bin        Bin number.
Whereas the y-axis can be
  flux       Plot the flux value. This is the default.
  frequency  Produce a bin vs frequency greyscale display.
  channel    Produce a bin vs channel greyscale display.
mode
This determines what `flux' quantity is plotted. Possible values are:
  real      Plot the real part of the data. This is the default.
  imaginary Plot the imaginary part of the data.
  amplitude Plot the amplitude of the data.
  phase     Plot the phase of the data.
options
Extra processing options. Several can be given, separated by commas. Minimum match is supported.
  nocal     This option suppresses antenna gain calibration. The
            default behaviour is to apply antenna calibration.
  nopol     This option suppresses polarisation calibration. The
            default behaviour is to apply polarisation calibration.
  nopass    This option suppresses bandpass calibration. The
            default behaviour is to apply bandpass calibration.
log
File in which to write the data, if y-axis is amplitude. The default is no logfile.
