NAME

eincdpar -- edit the eincdrom package wide parameters

USAGE

eincdpar

DESCRIPTION

eincdpar contains the parameters which are made available to all of the tasks in eincdrom . It contains directory names for the various Einstein CDROMs and pathnames to tables which contain information on the various datasets.

A user can edit the eincdpar parameter set by calling the eincdpar task. This will put the user in an eparam session of the parameter file eincdpar.par.

PARAMETERS

ipcevtN = "ipcevtN$" (for N=1,2,3,4)
These parameters contain the directories of the four Einstein IPC event CDROMs.

These parameters contain the directories of the two Einstein HRI event CDROMs.

These parameters contain the directories of the three EOSCAT (IPC image) CDROMs.

This is the table which holds the information about the IPC event dataset. See info tables below.

ipcevtindex = "ipcevt1$lists/unix/seqnindx.asc" [OBSOLETE PARAMETER]
This file holds the index file which maps sequence numbers into fits file names for the ipc event CDROMs. This index file must be in the following format:
    I00027 14h/i1409n73.xpa
    I00029 17h/i1710n71.xpa
    I00030 21h/i2109s68.xpa
      .
      .
    (etc.)
hrievtindex = "hrievt2$lists/unix/seqnindx.asc" [OBSOLETE PARAMETER]
This file holds the index file which maps sequence numbers into fits file names for the hri event CDROMs. This index file must be a text file containing columns separated by spaces. The first column must be the sequence number and the third column must be the fits file name. The tag "OGS" may appear directly after the sequence number in the first column. The following is an example of this format:

eoscatindex = "eoscat2$lists/unix/seqnindx.asc" [OBSOLETE PARAMETER]
This file holds the index file which maps sequence numbers into fits file names for the EOSCAT CDROMs. This index file must be a text file containing columns separated by spaces. The seventh column must be the sequence number and the ninth column must be the fits file name. The exposure file names (with extensions .R**) will be skipped. The following is an example of this format:

The first seven lines on this index file will be ignored.
hriimgindex = "hriimg1$lists/unix/seqnindx.asc" [OBSOLETE PARAMETER]
This file holds the index file which maps sequence numbers into fits file names for the hri image CDROMs. This index file must be a text file containing columns separated by spaces. The first column must be the sequence number and the third column must be the fits file name. The tag "OGS" may appear directly after the sequence number in the first column.

INFO TABLES

There is one table of information for each dataset. These STSDAS tables store the following information: sequence, fits-root, fits-extension, CD number holding data, RA, DEC, sequence hour, event offset, livetime, and title. See the task ecdinfo for more information on these columns.

These tables make the index tables above obsolete; they will be removed by the next release.

EXAMPLES

1. List the eincdrom parameters in eincdpar.

        xs> lparam eincdpar

2. Edit the eincdrom parameters in eincdpar.

        xs> eincdpar

3. Edit the eincdpar parameters from within the ecdinfo parameter file.

    xs> eparam ecdinfo

        ... edit a few ecdinfo parameters

        ... move down to the eincdpar parameter and type :e

        ... edit the eincdpar parameters and type :q

        ... finish editing the ecdinfo parameters and type :q or ^X

4. Changing a eincdpar parameter from the command line.

    xs> eincdpar.ipcevt1="/mydata/ipcevt1"
