Table of Contents



Incorrect RSP RMFs

RSP RMFs, those that are supposed to include the ARF, are incorrect. Users should not use type=rsp.

Bad warning when directory does not exist

The tool will return an unhelpful error message

# addresp (CIAO):
ERROR: failed to ariet ARF ->dm: [ftDatasetCreate]: FITS error 105 

when the output file cannot be created because the directory does not exist.

Bugs fixed in CIAO 4.14

The following is a list of bugs that were fixed in the CIAO 4.14 software release.

Incorrect NUMGRP and NUMELT keywords

The addresp tool is not updating the NUMGRP nor the NUMELT keywords in the output file to match the actual values in the MATRIX's N_GRP and N_CHAN columns. It is simply copying those keywords from the 1st file to the output file. These incorrect values have shown to cause problems with XSPEC v 12.11.0.
