Data areas

A script automatically copies the NPOI raw data from the DATAcon disks to /datacon11 on the site data reduction computer octans. High rate data files are files with the extensions .fringeData and .alignData. Metrology data files have the extension .sidData.?, where the index refers to the SIDcon ID, not the siderostat ID. Also copied to datacon11 are the observer log (extension .log) and the scan log (extension .starlog).

CONSTRICTOR is run in /home/constrictor, which is also where the output files, extension .con, are kept.
