COMPRESS

        CLIC\COMPRESS timemax uvmax

    *** THIS HELP IS NOT UPTODATE ***

    Compress data in the current index by averaging  successive  records  in
    individual  scans.  'timemax'  is  the  maximum  averaging  time in sec-
    onds.  Data with baseline orientation differing by  more 'uvmax'  in me-
    ters   in   the  UV  plane  are  not  averaged,  as well as data flagged
    differently.

    Defaults for timemax and  uvmax  are  60  seconds  and  7.5  meters  re-
    spectively.    An   output  file  must  have  been opened to receive the
    compressed data.

    Use command COPY rather than COMPRESS to copy the whole current index to
    a new file.

    For  data  taken after September 1992 (new correlator), the command will
    only  compress  the  temporal  data (data header   and   continuum  sub-
    bands),  since  the  spectral data is already compressed to 1 record per
    scan.
