AHELP for CIAO 4.15


Context: contrib


Contributed CIAO routines for Crates.


import crates_contrib.all
from crates_contrib.all import *


The crates_contrib package provides useful routines for CIAO users, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.

Loading the routines

The module can be loaded into a Python session (such as Sherpa, IPython, or Python script) by saying one of the following:

from crates_contrib.all import *
import crates_contrib.all

This will load in all the modules that are part of this package; this is currently:

Module Description
crates_contrib.images Routines related to images
crates_contrib.utils Utility routines

See the ahelp files for the individual packages and the contributed scripts page for further information.

Changes in the December 2012 release

The modules have been updated for the CIAO 4.5 release.
