Check contents of a kmos fits-file
esorex kmo_fits_check [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
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.
--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.

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].
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.

An overview over the existing ESO pipelines can be found on the web page http://www.eso.org/sci/software/pipelines/.
Basic documentation about the EsoRex program can be found at the esorex (1) man page.
It is possible to call the pipelines from python using the python-cpl package. See http://packages.python.org/python-cpl/index.html for further information.
