upqpoerdf -- convert a list of IRAF/PROS QPOE file into RDF compatible format
upqpoerdf upgrades PROS QPOE file into the current format. This task will run on a single file, a filename template or a filename list. It modifies the file in place and can be run more than once with no ill-affects. It checks for old features, and if present, converts them to the new format. NOTE: You must have write access to the QPOE file. Also, for the special case of ROSAT/HRI data, it will run the task qpgapmap to generate the necessary detx,dety coordinates if they are not present, provided that the rawx,rawy input coordinates have been provided.
- listfile = "" prompt = input (QPOE) filename or list
The input QPOE file name, template or list ( a list of filenames is entered with the "@qlist.lst" syntax.
- (display = 1) [int]
The display level. A display level of 0 generates no display. A display level of 1 displays the filenames converted.
- (qp_psize = 2048) [int]
Page size for the qpoe file. This parameter is internal to qpoe and should not normally be changed.
- (qp_blen = 4096) [int]
Bucket length for the qpoe file. This parameter is internal to qpoe and should not normally be changed.

Virtually instantaneous, as only header keywords are modified in place. Except for the ROSAT/HRI case when QPGAPMAP must be run as well. The time is then proportional to the number of events in the file.
