Unpack PHA data from a PHACrate
unpack_bkg( filename|PHACrate, [use_errors=False] )
The unpack_bkg command unpacks PHA data from a FITS file or a PHACrate into a Sherpa data object. unpack_bkg always returns a list of PHA datasets, in order to handle both Type I and II PHA files. To select specific elements after unpacking, use the syntax file, file, etc.
If a filename is provided as input, a crate is created but hidden and cannot be used for other analysis in the session.
- filename|PHACrate - the name of the file (with path) or PHACrate which contains the PHA data
- use_errors - read the statistical errors from the PHA file? default=False
sherpa> bg1 = unpack_bkg("pha.fits")
Unpack the background spectrum into the object "bg1".
sherpa> bgcr = read_pha("3c273.pha") sherpa> bgdata = unpack_bkg(bgcr)
The spectrum is read into an PHACrate (named "bgcr") from the file 3c273.pha. The data is then unpacked into Sherpa from the crate.
