Display the fit statistic
show_stat([outfile=None, clobber=False] )
The show_stat command displays the current fit statistic.
- outfile - name of the file in which to store the information
- clobber - a Boolean switch which indicates whether or not the 'outfile' should be overwritten, if the file already exists; default=False
The command output looks like:
The behavior of the screen output is determined by the user's $PAGER environment variable setting, which is usually a variant of "more." To disable paging within show_all() - i.e. print the entire contents, even if it scrolls offscreen - change this setting to "cat" before starting Sherpa:
unix% setenv PAGER cat unix% sherpa
Print the statistic to the screen.
sherpa> show_stat("sherpa.stat", True)
Write the fit statistic value to the file "sherpa.stat", clobbering any existing file with the same name.
