NAME

fixcal - adjust calibration information in run headers  

SYNOPSIS

fixcal [-v] [-f] [-c calfile] runfile ...  

DESCRIPTION

Fixcal allows you to change the calibration information in a previously captured run of data. The calibration information in the calibration file, including the channel names, is copied into the run header of the frame file specified by each runfile name. The file name suffix .frm is appended to each runfile name specified, if not already present.

See the calibration overview in calibrate(1) to find out more about managing calibration information.  

Options

-v
Provide verbose description of what is being updated.
-f
Force all entries in run headers to be updated. Normally, only entries that were not set are adjusted.
-c calfile
Specifies the calibration file to be used for setting the calibration information in the run headers. Default is default.cal.
 

Environment Variables

The environment variable ADGAINTYPE should be set to "2" on your machine if gains increase by powers of 2 rather than powers of 4, as is the case when you have an EF12M. ADMAXLEV must be set to the maximum input voltage of your A/D converter (in microvolts), if is anything other than the default of "5000000" - it must be set to "10000000" for an EF12M. ADGAINCODE can be set to the desired default gain code (0 to 3), if the standard ±5V input range is inappropriate. Note that this sets the gain code, not the resulting gain factor, which is dependent on the type of A/D converter on your machine. The reason fixcal is concerned with these is that they determine what the calibrate(1) program's initial default calibration values are. These environment variables should be set in your ".login" file, so you won't have to bother setting them each time.
