NAME

prfit -- Print the contents of tables generated by the fitting tasks.

USAGE

prfit input

DESCRIPTION

This task sends the contents of one or more STSDAS fit tables to STDOUT. Tables are assumed to have been generated by the curve fitting tasks in the fitting package. Multiple files can be printed from a single call by using wildcard characters when specifying the input parameter. A hard copy of the display can be generated by directing output to the printer (see the example below).

The full precision of function coefficients and associated errors is not displayed so that the listing will be more readable.

PARAMETERS

input [file name template]
Table(s) to be displayed.

EXAMPLES

1. Print the contents of all tables having root name of data and extension .tab on the line printer.

fi> prfit data* | lprint

BUGS

When displaying coefficient errors, the tag "fixed" is written whenever the error is equal to zero, meaning that the associated coefficient was kept fixed during the fit. This can be misleading if a coefficient error from a non-fixed coefficient was returned by the fitting algorithm as being zero.
