Generating Wiki Pages

An entry for the global wiki page for the session needs to be added by hand to the main VLBI wiki page. Copy and past the top entry and change to the next session.

The session wiki page can be generated (as “vlbi” on the ATNF Sydney unix machines (try machine cetus as some older machines have perl issues)) by running a script on the session “text” file, generally located in the web pages. Make sure you use the most up-to-date version. Run as:

> /nfs/wwwatdocs/vlbi/schedules/lba/08OCTS_schedule_nov_v1.1.txt

This will automatically post to the wiki using the standard session name (you can prevent automatic posting with the –stdout argument). This script assumes the current year. If you want to generate the wikipage for a session in the following year, pass the argument “-year 2010”, for example. You will need to manually edit the links to the block schedule.

For each experiment, run the command

> --test experiment.vex

Check it looks OK, then

> experiment.vex

This automatically creates the experiment wiki page.

Run the commands

> experiment.vex
> experiment

This calls for Parkes and for Mopra and ATCA. The wrapper script is pretty dumb, it does not check each ATNF telescope is in the schedule and creates an (empty) schedule for each missing telescope.

Easy experiment distribution

The command


Does all the steps above (generates ATNF schedules from vex, make wiki and copied schedules to the right place)

Google Calendar Version

You need to create a .csv file, then import into google calendars:

> 22OCTS_schedule_oct_v1.2.txt

In google calendar (in browser), go to settings (cog weel at top right→Settings), then Import * export (left of screen). Select “Import → Select file from your computer” and add to “LBA Observing” Calendar. Click Import and should, import # events equal to number of experiments (long experiments are split at day boundaries)
