NAME

refdata -- Edit the parameter set that contains synphot reference data.

USAGE

refdata

DESCRIPTION

The refdata parameters specify certain quantities that are common to all tasks in the synphot package.

Note that this is a pset, not an executable task; it defines a set of parameters used by other tasks. Invoking the pset by name runs eparam on the parameter set, allowing the user to modify the parameters. Alternatively, the parameters may be modified on the command line by specifying the pset name and parameter name. For example, you can type "refdata.area=7853.98" to set the collecting area to that of a 1-meter telescope. Parameters can also be edited by using eparam on the calling task (e.g., by typing "eparam calcphot"), in which case, refdata will appear as one of the task parameters. The refdata parameters may then be edited by positioning the cursor on the line containing the refdata name and typing ":e". After editing the pset parameters, type Control-D (or :q) to return to the main task parameter menu.

PARAMETERS

(area = 45238.93416) [real]
Telescope area in square centimeters. The default is the value for the HST.
(grtbl = "mtab$*.tmg") [string]
File name template specifying the name of the instrument graph table. The default string, containing the "*" wildcard, will search for the latest available version of the table.
(cmptbl = "mtab$*.tmc") [string]
File name template specifying the name of the instrument component table. The default string, containing the "*" wildcard, will search for the latest available version of the table.
