A new version of the Contributed Scripts and Modules tarfile has been
released; download the updated package from the Scripts page.
A number of bug fixes were released for the specextract script in the 22
December 2010 update of the CIAO contributed science tarfile. The new
tarfile may be download via ciao-install
(http://cxc.harvard.edu/ciao/download/) or from the CIAO Contributed
Scripts Page (http://cxc.harvard.edu/ciao/download/scripts/).
The changes to specextract are:
* corrected a syntax error when running the sky2tdet tool (weighted
ARF mode): the energy filter was not properly applied.
* bug fix for "grouptype=BIN" binning specification. The script
would fail when this option was used.
* the "combine=yes" option is now fully supported, with the related
updates to the ciao_contrib.runtool module.
* update to the parameter file listing: asp and mskfile parameters
are required, not optional.
The ciao_contrib.runtool module has also been updated to improve support
for running the combine_spectra and specextract tools.
As a reminder: there were several enhancements to the specextract script
release in CIAO 4.3, which resulted in a few changes in syntax. Refer
to the "Analysis Scripts" section of the CIAO release notes for a
description of the changes:
