Loading data

Note that there are some procedures which package several tasks, e.g., get_pointdata includes loading of the configuration, scantable, etc., and the loading of point data for all scans.

get_records

Read raw data from HDS file. Since there is only one scan per file, no scan number needs to be specified. Note that all records all loaded.
get_points,[scans$<$_integer$>$]
Read point data for list of scans. First scan number is always 1! Note that configuration and table data must have been read prior to this call! The default is to load point data for all scans.
get_scans
Read scan data into scans. Note that configuration and table data must have been read prior to this call!
get_bgscans
Read background scan data into bgscans. Note that configuration and table data must have been read prior to this call!
get_motiongroup,group$<$_integer$>$
Read motion group data from .inch file.
get_astromcorrgroup,group$<$_integer$>$
Read astromcorr group data from .inch file.
get_metrogroup,group$<$_integer$>$
Compount procedure for get_motiongroup and get_astromcorrgroup. Note that the first group is index 1!
get_star,star$<$_char$>$
Read point data for star (e.g. FKV0193). Note that configuration and table data must have been read prior to this call!
get_rawdata,[file$<$_char$>$]
Compound procedure. Open file if necessary and read configuration, table, and raw data.
get_pointdata,[file$<$_char$>$]
Compound procedure. Read point data for all scans. Get auxilliary data. Open file if necessary.
get_scandata,[file$<$_char$>$]
Compound procedure. Read scan data and auxilliary data from .cha file. Do astrometry. This command is sufficient to read an entire .cha file. Open file if necessary.
get_metrodata,[file$<$_char$>$]
Compound procedure. Read metrology data from .inch file. Also read general configuration and scantable data. Allocate and fill in startable.
get_data,[file$<$_char$>$]
Compound procedure for all of the above. Checks file format to see which of the above compound routines will be called to read the data.
