WRITE

        TIFITS\WRITE [file] [/DATA] [/NOCAL] [/HOLO] [/ANTENNA] [/TELESCOPE]

    Write  data  into a new Fits file in ALMATI Fits format. All data in the
    current index (initialized by the last command FIND) is converted.  This
    command  and  many of the options were actually designed to prepare test
    data.

    `file'

    is the output file name. The extension ".fits" is added if not  present.
    The  file  will  be  split if more than 950 table extensions are needed;
    this is to enable using the CFITSIO library and  optimize  file  reading
    performance.   In  that  case  the  fits files are named `file'-01.fits,
    `file'-02.fits, ...

    /DATA

    forces the writing of binary table extensions (ALMATI-CORRDATA,  ALMATI-
    AUTODATA, ALMATI-HOLODATA).  Otherwise only ALMATI-DATAPAR, ALMATI-CALI-
    BR, ALMATI-GAIN, ALMATI-PASSBAND are written.

    /NOCAL

    disables the writing of atmospheric calibration data (e.g.  system  tem-
    peratures, water contents,...).

    /HOLO ant ref

    generates  test  ALMATI-HOLODATA tables, based on actual holography data
    from Plateau de Bure. `ant' is the antenna that was  scanned  and  `ref'
    points  to  the  reference antenna (i.e. the data from the baseline from
    `ref' to `ant' will be used).

    /ANTENNA ant1 ant2 ant3 ... antn

    selects a subset of antennas (subarray) which is only used.
