NAME

       writems - Create one or more MeasurementSets

SYNOPSIS

       writems parm=value ...

Parameters

       nms    Number  of MeasurementSets to create (0 means 1 MS without suffix; default, >0 also
              creates MultiMS)

       msname Name of the output MeasurementSet (suffix _p<i> is added if nms>0)

       ra     One or more J2000 Right Ascensions (as hh:mm:ss.sss); defines the fields

       dec    One or more J2000 Declinations (as dd.mm.ss.sss); defines the fields

       anttab Name of the ANTENNA table giving the antenna parameters to use  (zero/empty  values
              if not given)

       startfreq
              Start frequency (Hz) per spw (1 value counts on for other spws; default: 1e9)

       chanwidth
              Channel frequency width (Hz) per spw (1 value applies to all spws; default: 1e6)

       starttime
              Start time (e.g., 23Mar2016/12:00:00)

       timestep
              Time interval (sec; default: 1)

       ntime  Number  of time steps (default: 1) ntimefield Number of time steps per field (0=all
              fields for all times; default)

       nspw   Number of spectral windows (default: 1)

       npol   Number of polarizations per spectral window; 1 value applies to all spws  (default:
              4)

       nchan  Number of channels per spectral window; 1 value applies to all spws (default: 256)

       nant   Number  of antennae to use; it anttab is given maximum to use is its size (default:
              0)

       calcuvw
              Calculate UVW coordinates? (default: false)

       autocorr
              Write autocorrelations? (default: true)

       weightspectrum
              Write WEIGHT_SPECTRUM column? (default: false)

       imagercolumns
              Write imager columns (MODEL_DATA, CORRECTED_DATA)? (default: false)

       rowwise
              Write the data row wise (thus a put per row) (default: true)

       nflagbits
              int Write multiple flag bits (0, 8, 16 or 32) mapped to FLAG (default: 0)

       flagcolumn
              Name of the FlagBits column if nflagbits>0 (default: "FLAG_BITS")

       tilesize
              Size of data tiles (KBytes); default is 1024

       tilesizefreq
              Number of channels in data tiles; default is all channels

       multifile
              Use the MultiFile feature? (default: false)

       multihdf5
              Use the MultiHDF5 feature? (default: false)

       mfsize MultiFile/HDF5 block size (KBytes); default is tilesize

       ashdf5 bool Write the data in HDF5 format (default: false)
