### RAWPRESS

Compress raw data

#### Description:

Compress the raw time series data. Currently two compression schemes are available - see parameter " METHOD" . This task is intended to be a test bed of compression algorithms.

#### Parameters:

Input files to be compressed.
The compression scheme to use:

" OLD" - converts 32-bit integers to 16-bit integers by calculating a common mode signal at each time slice and a multiplicative value (BZERO and BSCALE) after removing the first measurement (STACKZERO).

" DELTA" - stores the differences between adjacent bolometer samples as 16-bit integers. Any values for which the differences are too big to be stored in 16 bits are stored explicitly in 32 bit integers (see SUN/11 for full details).
