UVSPLIT chooses its own names for the output data-sets. These are in the form
sourcename.frequencyWhere ``frequency'' is the center frequency of the band, in MHz, rounded to the nearest MHz.
nocopy By default, uvsplit copies any calibration tables present in the input to the output. The nocopy option suppresses this. mosaic Typically this option is used when splitting datasets observed in mosaic mode. UVSPLIT attempts to place all pointing centres of the source of interest into the one output dataset. This requires that the field names of the different pointings be composed of two parts, separated by an underscore, viz a_b Where "a" is common to all field names (typically a source) and "b" is a field-specific name (typically a field number). For example field 123 of a mosaic experiment of the LMC might be called "lmc_123" clobber If a dataset exists with the same name as one that uvsplit would create, then delete that dataset before creating uvsplit's output. calcode If splitting by source, take calcode into accountThe following three options determine which data-set characteristics result in UVSPLIT generating different output data-sets.
nosource Do not produce new data-sets based on source name. That is each output data-set can contain multiple sources. The default is for each output to contain only a single source. nofreq Do not produce new output data-sets based on a switch in frequency. That is each output data-set can contain frequency switches. nowindow Do not generate a separate output data-set for each spectral window. The default is to create a new output for each spectral window.
