addsets - Add subsets of a string of spectra
addsets input records
- The root file name for the input spectra in the string.
- The range of spectra indicating the elements of the string. The names of the spectra will be formed by appending the range elements to the input root name.
- This is the root file name for the names of the spectra which will be created by the addset operation.
- start_rec = 1
- The starting record number to be appended to the root name of the created spectra.
- subset = 2
- The length of the substring of spectra which will be added together. For IIDS/IRS data which has been processed through BSWITCH, this parameter should be 2. This implies that spectra will be taken 2 at a time, added, and the sum written as a new spectrum.
- weighting = yes
- If set to yes, an average of the substring of spectra is generated (if flux calibrated) weighted by the integration times of the individual spectra. If set to no, a simple average is generated. If not flux calibrated, this parameter has no effect - a simple sum is generated.
Every "subset" group of spectra will be accumulated and the sum will be written as a new spectrum. For example, if the input string contains 100 spectra, and subset=2, then 50 new spectra will be created. Each new spectrum will be the sum of the consecutive pairs in the original string.
If there are insufficient spectra to complete a subset accumulation, the sum is written out anyway and a warning printed. For example, if the input string contains 23 spectra, and subset=4, there will be 6 new spectra created, but the last one will be based on only 3 spectra.
Subset may be set to 1 to allow a copy operation although this is not a very efficient way to do so.
The following three examples are those described above.
cl> addsets nite1 2001-2100 cl> addsets nite1 2001-2023 subset=4 cl> addsets nite1 2001-2010 subset=1 output=nite2 \ >>> start_rec=2001
