SYNOPSIS

esorex kmo_fits_check [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

Recipe to print information on FITS files, contained data/noise values or header keywords of all extensions of a fits file, preferably a KMOS fits-file (RAW, F1I, F2I, F3I, F2D etc.). This recipe is intended for debugging purposes only.

By default a short summary is printed.

The following data types of keywords are recognized: bool, char, double, float, int, long, string As input one fits-file is accepted, no output frame is generated.

BASIC PARAMETERS

--h With this parameter just the header keywords are printed:

  –1  prints the primary header and the headers of all the extensions
   0  prints just the primary header
   1  prints the header of the first extension etc.

--d With this parameter just the data (or depending on the extension: noise) is printed:

  –1 prints the primary header and the headers of all the extensions
   0 prints data of the primary header which is empty for KMOS FITS frames
   1 prints the data/noise of the first extension etc.

This parameter should only be used with very small datasets, otherwise the screen will be flooded with numbers.

  Input files:
   DO                    KMOS
   category              Type   Explanation                    Required #Frames
   --------              -----  -----------                    -------- -------
   <none or any>         <any>  Any FITS file                      Y       1
  Output files:
   DO                    KMOS
   category              Type   Explanation
   --------              -----  -----------
   <none>                <none> No output frames generated, only text output

OPTIONS

--data <long>

The extension whose data to print. (0 is the empty primary extension, -1 prints just all data extensions, by default all headers and data of all extensions are printed. (long; default: -2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.fits_check.data [default = -2].

--header <long>

The extension whose header to print(0 is the empty primary extension, -1 prints just all headers, by default all headers and data of all extensions are printed. (long; default: -2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.fits_check.header [default = -2].

Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing these options, along with suitable default values. Please refer to the details provided by the 'esorex --help' command.
