|AHELP for CIAO 4.9||
Contributed Crates, ChIPS, and Sherpa routines for CIAO.
import ciao_contrib.all from ciao_contrib.all import * Note: in CIAO 4.2 the module was called ciao_contrib
The ciao_contrib package provides useful routines for CIAO users, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.
The module can be loaded into ChIPS or Sherpa by saying:
from ciao_contrib.all import *
This will load in all the modules that are part of this package; this is currently:
|ciao_contrib.caldb||Utility routines related to the CIAO CALDB|
|ciao_contrib.smooth||Simple smoothing routines for image data|
|ciao_contrib.stacklib||Expand out a CIAO stack value into an array of values|
|ciao_contrib.region.all||Routines for handling CIAO region files|
|ciao_contrib.utils||Utility routines for CIAO|
The ciao_contrib.runtool module is not loaded as part of ciao_contrib, since it provides a large number of routines. This module must be imported directly.
See the ahelp files for the individual packages and the contributed scripts page for further information.
The add_ds9_contours() ahd read_ds9_contours() routines have been added to the chips_contrib.utils and crates_contrib.utils modules respectively; they provide basic support for plotting and reading in the *.con contour files created by DS9.
The SimpleCoordTransform class has been added to the crates_contrib.utils module to simplify converting between the coordinate systems of an image.
The ciao_contrib.runtool module has been updated to include the new fluximage script, support setting parameters with an array, better handling of long parameter values, and minor improvements to the set_pfiles() and new_pfiles_environment() routines.
The ciao_contrib.stacklib module has been added.
The ciao_contrib.runtool module has been updated to handle ardlib parameter names which contain a "-".
To load in all the CIAO contributed modules you now have to say one of
import ciao_contrib.all from ciao_contrib.all import *
import ciao_contrib from ciao_contrib import *
which now no longer loads in any code.
