|AHELP for CIAO 4.3 Sherpa v1||
Contributed CIAO routines for Sherpa.
import sherpa_contrib.all from sherpa_contrib.all import * Note: in CIAO 4.2 the module was called sherpa_contrib
The sherpa_contrib package provides a number of useful routines for Sherpa users, and is provided as part of the CIAO contributed scripts package.
The module can be loaded into Sherpa by using either of:
from sherpa_contrib.all import * import sherpa_contrib.all
This will load in all the modules that are part of this package; this currently includes:
|sherpa_contrib.utils||Routines for calculating the weights file for mkinstmap.|
|sherpa_contrib.profiles||Plot radial profiles of data and fits of imaging (2D) data.|
|sherpa_contrib.chart||Routines for creating and visualizing the data files used by the Chandra Ray Tracer (ChaRT).|
See the ahelp files for the individual packages and the contributed scripts page for further information.
To load in all the Sherpa contributed modules you now have to say one of
import sherpa_contrib.all from sherpa_contrib.all import *
import sherpa_contrib from sherpa_contrib import *
which now no longer loads in any code.
The sherpa_contrib.primini and sherpa_contrib.flux_dist modules have been removed since their functionality is now included in Sherpa.
