Return to Analysis Utilities

This page documents the editIntents function of Python module analysisUtils.

Sometimes the intents for a source specified in the OT are incorrect, especially in Early Science. This problem can confound automatic processing scripts being developed for ES data reduction. To correct this problem, we have borrowed a script from John Lightfoot of the pipeline group, and made it a command-line utility rather than an interactive utility. We also added three additional intents (WVR, ATMOSPHERE and SIDEBAND_RATIO) in use by ALMA.

Usage:

au.editIntents(msName, fieldID or fieldName, list of intents or comma-delimited string)

Examples

au.editIntents('uid___A002_X142764_X24.ms', 0, 'DELAY,PHASE,WVR')

au.editIntents('uid___A002_X142764_X24.ms', '3c454.3', ['DELAY','PHASE'])
