AHELP for CIAO 4.3 Sherpa v1


Context: contrib


Create and view spectral files for ChaRT (CIAO contributed package).


from sherpa_contrib.chart import *


The sherpa_contrib.chart module provides routines for creating and viewing the input spectral files for ChaRT users, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.

Loading the routines

The module can be loaded into Sherpa by saying either of:

from sherpa_contrib.chart import *
from sherpa_contrib.all import *

where the second form loads in all the Sherpa contributed routines, not just the chart module.


The chart module currenly provides the following routines:

save_chart_spectum() Writes out the model spectrum in the units used by by ChaRT
plot_chart_spectum() Plot the model spectrum in the units used by ChaRT
get_chart_spectum() Get the model spectrum in the units used by ChaRT

See the ahelp file for the routine and the contributed scripts page for further information.


See the bugs pages for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
