Region routines for ChIPS (CIAO contributed package)
import chips_contrib.regions from chips_contrib.regions import *
The chips_contrib.regions module provides extra routines for using regions in ChIPS, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.
Loading the routines
The module can be loaded into ChIPS, Sherpa or Python scripts by saying one of the following:
from chips_contrib.regions import * from chips_contrib.all import *
where the second line will load in all the ChIPS contributed routines, not just the regions module.
The regions module currenly provides one routine:
|add_fov_region()||Display a Chandra FOV (field-of-view) file as a region; see "ahelp add_fov_region" for more information.|
Changes in the December 2010 Release
Module name change
To load in all the ChIPS contributed modules you now have to say one of
import chips_contrib.all from chips_contrib.all import *
import chips_contrib from chips_contrib import *
which no longer loads in any code.
