Error in PCAL

Here's a question from Akshaya Rane:

I am doing polarization calibration and while trying to run 'pcal', I have encountered the following error. Does this has to do something with qualifiers?

PCAL 3: TOTAL INTENSITIES MUST BE PROVIDED
PCAL 3: Purports to die of UNNATURAL causes

Any thoughts?

I should add that Eric Greisen says that if you spend an hour trying to figure out something in AIPS, and you can't, you should feel free to email him and ask his help.

Have you run CALIB, GETJY and CLCAL on the sources you are using for PCAL?

Are you actually applying the corrections (docalib=1, etc)?
