Bugs: wavdetect


Bugs

  1. There cannot be two sets of brackets ("[ ]") in the input file specification.

  2. Autonaming of ASCII region files uses the .fits extension instead of .reg as would be expected.

  3. Wavdetect deletes the input file (10 Oct 2007)

  4. Running wavdetect with clobber+ prints a grep error:


Bugs

  1. There cannot be two sets of brackets ("[ ]") in the input file specification.

    An example of an unacceptable syntax is

    unix% wavdetect "evt2.fits[energy=500:8000][bin X=4275:4925:1,Y=3775:4425:1]"
    

    The tool will exit with an error:

    grep: RE error 49: [ ] imbalance.
    parammatch : can't find parameter X in reference list
    parameter error?
    

    Workaround:

    Include the parameter name before the file specfication:

    unix% wavdetect infile="evt2.fits[energy=500:8000][bin X=4275:4925:1,Y=3775:4425:1]"
    
  2. Autonaming of ASCII region files uses the .fits extension instead of .reg as would be expected.

    In general, autonaming only works for simple cases.

  3. Wavdetect deletes the input file (10 Oct 2007)

    If the input filename does not contain a "." (e.g. ".fits"), the tool deletes the input file and exits with an error.

  4. Running wavdetect with clobber+ prints a grep error:

    wavdetect is a script that calls other CIAO tools, and it does not currently understand the "+" shorthand for setting a parameter to "yes".

    Workaround:

    Change the parameter setting to clobber=yes.
