Use of the Pulsar Timing Programs
|AUTOEDIT|| Usage: set autoedit on/off (default is on)|
If autoedit is ON, psrprof will try to combine different channels of each integration into one "i" channel. It does this by searching the EDIT buffer for lines that read "setvar in nch 1", "avch in x x" and "dedisp in" and replacing them with combinations of lines that dedisperse channels if required and combine all left and right polarisations into 1 intensity channel.
You can check the action taken by AUTOEDIT by typing EDIT SHOW after a read. This will show how the edit buffer has been altered for the particular set of data that has just been read.
The new edit commands will be placed in the edit stack to replace the above commands. Commands above this will be unaffected, commands below will be pushed up or down depending on the number of edit lines which have been replaced.
If "avch in x x scale" has been used in the template edit buffer, then the scale qualifier will be carried through into all the avch commands produced (tstprof 2/11/2001).
|CHECKFOBS||Default is ON|
Checks (and if necessary) corrects the frequency of the observation, using the values set in OBSFREQUENCIES.DAT.
The delayrate modifies the shift applied when averaging the IN and AV arrays. The shift applied is the sum of the shift called for in the average command and the product of the delayrate and the difference in header times between the two arrays. It is also set in the integrate drift command
Enable (default) or disable the stopping of precessing by an error.
This allows processing of results with a script to run without
the user having to continually restart. However, the results produced
should be checked. (In the case of getflux, a flag showing the result
of the calculation is written with
WRITE LINE FLUX.

The four data arrays IN, AV, A3 and A4 are referenced by IBLOCK=1,2,3,4|
|IGRCLUTTER||Controls the amount of labelling shown on various graphs. Default = 3|
