load_multi_arfs

Context: data

Synopsis

Load multiple ARFs

Syntax

load_multi_arfs( [id], filenames, resp_ids)

Description

The load_multi_arfs command loads multiples ARFs (effective areas) from FITS files and assigns them response ids. More than one ARF may be associated with a single dataset.

  • id - the id of the dataset to use; if not given, uses the default dataset id (id=1 by default, see "ahelp get_default_id")
  • filename - a list of the files (with path) which contain the ARF data
  • resp_id - a list containing a response id for each file loaded

Example

sherpa> load_multi_arfs(["source1.arf", "source2.arf"], [1,2])

The ARF files source1.arf and source2.arf are loaded as responses 1 and 2 for the default dataset.

Bugs

See the bugs pages on the Sherpa website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
