Combine partial ifu field-of-views reconstructed by vmifuscience from different quadrants.
esorex vmifucombine [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
This recipe is used to compose into a single image the reconstructed images of the IFU field-of-view from different VIMOS quadrants.
Such images are created by the recipes vmifuscience and vmifustandard.
The input images must belong to different quadrants, so that they cannot be more than 4. The images are simply summed together: in fact, all field-of-view images are always 80x80 pixels, with only the sector corresponding to one quadrant having intensities that differ from zero.
For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User\'s Guide.
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.
