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.
