mcat_vig_corrector.pl oldmcatdir newmcatdir
The following uncalibrated magnitudes are updated: Mag, MTot, MCore, MAper, MIso, CX. Of these, all but CX are 1000 times their actual values. The quanta of change made is noted in a separate column. Thus three new columns (61-63 for a standard mcat) are used to put the changes. The columns are called VigJ, VigF and VigN. Once the newmcat is made the old one is removed (if you own it).
where x is either j or f or n and YYY is a valid plate number. It is assumed that the t????.fits file are in the directory dirpath/xYYY. The resulting file will be dirpath/xYYY-full.fits. The files dirpath/t????.fits are removed once the corrected plate is ready.
vig_correct_plate.pl dirpath1/assembled.fits dirpath2/corrected.fits x
where x is either j or f or n. You should have write permission for directory dirpath2. The uncorrected file, dirpath1/assembled.fits is not automatically removed.
