Reads a set of SCUBA-2 files and writes catalogues of the mcehead information to files. The output
files are in TST format and can be read into the TOPCAT application (but may require that TOPCAT
is told explicitly that the catalogue is in TST format, e.g. with the
-f tst command line
Multiple output files are created since the data are stored with different
dimensionality. The root name for the output files can be specified using the
parameter (default: uses the
s??ddmmyyyy_nnnnn part of the input file name or the basename of the
filename if different).
Output files (suffix:
tst) are as follows:
parameters that have a single value (includes the 10 values for
psc_status_psc which don’t fit the
parameters that have 4 values
parameters that have 32 values (includes parameters that have 8 values since they always come in sets of 4).
parameters that have 41 values
used to specify the root output file name, out from all input files will be concatinated into a single set
of output files.
mcehead2cat *.sdf -out="outroot" -item=par1,par2
mcehead2cat *.sdf -item=l̂ist.in
-item=f̂ile. The format of the file is the desired list of item names with one item per line.
will only process 10 files, not all x-nr sdf files that may be there. It will produce 10 sets of output files
has been specified, in which case the mceheaders from the 10 files will be written to a single set of
