NAME

aptest -- run basic tests on the apphot package tasks

USAGE

aptest imname

PARAMETERS

imname
The name of the output test image. The actual test image is stored in fits format in the APPHOT package subdirectory test. If the image already exists APTEST will exit with a warning message.
aplogfile = ""
The name of the output log file. By default all the text output is logged in a file called "imname.log" . If the log file already exists APTEST will exit with a warning message.
applotfile = ""
The name of the output log file. By default all the plot output is logged in a file called "imname.plot" . If the plot file already exists APTEST will exit with a warning message.

DESCRIPTION

APTEST is a simple script which exercises each of the tasks in the APPHOT package in turn. At startup APTEST reads a small fits image stored in the APPHOT test subdirectory and creates the image imname in the user's working directory. APTEST initializes the APPHOT package by returning all the parameters to their default state, runs each of the APPHOT tasks in non-interactive mode, spools the text output to the file aplogfile , and spools the plot output from the RADPROF task to the plot metacode file applotfile .

EXAMPLES

1. Check to see that all the APPHOT tasks are functioning correctly.

	ap> apphot

	... load the apphot package

	ap> aptest testim

	... run the test script

	ap> lprint testim.log

	... print the text output

	ap> gkidir testim.plot

	... list the contents of the plot file

	ap> gkiextract testim.plot 1-N | stdplot

	... send the plots to the plotter
