SC2CONCAT

Concatenate files into a larger file

Description:

Given a list of input files this task concatenates them into larger files. The rules it follows are:

Parameters:

FLAT = _LOGICAL (Read)
If set ensure data are flatfielded. If not set do not scale the data in any way (but convert to DOUBLE). [TRUE]
FLATMETH = _CHAR (Read)
Method to use to calculate the flatfield solution. Options are POLYNOMIAL and TABLE. Polynomial fits a polynomial to the measured signal. Table uses an interpolation scheme between the measurements to determine the power. [POLYNOMIAL]
FLATORDER = _INTEGER (Read)
The order of polynomial to use when choosing POLYNOMIAL method. [1]
FLATSNR = _DOUBLE (Read)
Signal-to-noise ratio threshold to use when filtering the responsivity data to determine valid bolometers for the flatfield. [3.0]
FLATUSENEXT = _LOGICAL (Read)
If true the previous and following flatfield will be used to determine the overall flatfield to apply to a sequence. If false only the previous flatfield will be used. A null default will use both flatfields for data when we did not heater track at the end, and will use a single flatfield when we did heater track. The parameter value is not sticky and will revert to the default unless explicitly over-ridden. [!]
IN = NDF (Read)
Input file(s).
MAXLEN = _DOUBLE (Read)
Maximum length (in seconds) for concatenated file. The default is to use all data if possible (subject to available memory). [!]
MSG_FILTER = _CHAR (Read)
Control the verbosity of the application. Values can be NONE (no messages), QUIET (minimal messages), NORMAL, VERBOSE, DEBUG or ALL. [NORMAL]
OUT = NDF (Write)
Output concatenated files. Only used if OUTBASE is null (!). Note, the correct number of output files must be specified for OUT. If this number is not known, use parameter OUTBASE instead.
OUTBASE = LITERAL (Write)
The base name for the output NDFs. Each output NDF has a name equal to " base_ <n >" where <n > is an integer greater than or equal to 1. If a null (!) value is supplied, the output NDFs are instead specified by parameter OUT. [!]
OUTFILES = LITERAL (Write)
The name of text file to create, in which to put the names of all the output NDFs created by this application (one per line). If a null (!) value is supplied no file is created. [!]
PADEND = _INTEGER (Read)
Number of samples to pad at end. Default is no padding. [!]
PADSTART = _INTEGER (Read)
Number of samples to pad at start. Default is no padding. [!]
RESIST = GROUP (Read)
A group expression containing the resistor settings for each bolometer. Usually specified as a text file using " ^" syntax. An example can be found in $STARLINK_DIR/share/smurf/resist.cfg [$STARLINK_DIR/share/smurf/resist.cfg]
RESPMASK = _LOGICAL (Read)
If true, responsivity data will be used to mask bolometer data when calculating the flatfield. [TRUE]
USEDARKS = _LOGICAL (Read)
Use darks to mask data. [TRUE]
