beamName(x, which)



an adp object.


an integer indicating beam number.


A character string containing a reasonable name for the beam, of the form "beam 1", etc., for beam coordinates, "east", etc. for enu coordinates, "u", etc. for "xyz", or "u'", etc., for "other" coordinates. The coordinate system is determined with x[["coordinate"]].
