|AHELP for CIAO 4.5||
Add a column to a crate.
- crate - input crate
- cratedata - CrateData object to be added
The add_col command adds the column to the crate. If the column already exists in the crate, it is replaced.
The column is only added to the crate. The write_file ("ahelp write_file") command can be used to save the modified crate to a file.
>>> cr = read_file("mdl.fits") >>> print(get_col_names(cr)) ['E_MIN' 'E_MAX' 'MDLFLUX'] >>> emin = copy_colvals(cr, "E_MIN") >>> emax = copy_colvals(cr, "E_MAX") >>> emid = 0.5 * (emin + emax) >>> col = CrateData() >>> col.name = "E_MID" >>> col.values = emid >>> add_col(cr, col) >>> print(get_col_names(cr)) ['E_MIN' 'E_MAX' 'MDLFLUX' 'E_MID'] >>> write_file(cr, "mdl2.fits")
Here we create a column called E_MID, whose values are the mid-points of the E_MIN and E_MAX columns, and then add it to the crate. The write_file call creates a new file which includes this column.
