Up: Description of Associated Tasks
This task contains implementations of several CLEAN-like de-
convolution algorithm. The algorithm is selected through the METHOD$
keyword, which can be :
SIMPLE : The straightforward direct method.
CLARK : The Barry Clark major-minor cycle method.
MRC : a Multi-Resolution Clean.
THRESHOLD : Components are not restricted to be point sources.
The input map and beam should have the same sizes, except for the SIM-
PLE method where different beam sizes are allowed, and must have the
same grid spacing. Sources are searched only in the inner quarter of
the map, but their sidelobes are removed in the full map. A smaller
search box can be specified if desired.
The program can process all planes of a data cube at the same time, but
a separate list of component will be produced for each plane. The
cleaning cannot be restarted.
