CLIC has been significantly modified to handle the correlator architecture, and specially because of the introduction of the Time data. The major modification indeed concerns the content of ``records'' in an observation: ``records'' now contain only the Time data and associated parameters. Only one set of spectral data is available per scan. In addition, a special record (the ``average record'') containing the average over the whole scan of the time data is available.

CLIC can then plot in two modes: Time or Spectral mode.

In a funny way, CLIC and correlator are good examples of the uncertainty principle: you can have finely sampled data in time or in frequency, but not both at the same time (though $\Delta \nu . \Delta t >> h$)!
