RBF2FITS (Jan96) xanadu.xronos RBF2FITS (Jan96) NAME rbf2fits -- Converts the "EXOSAT rate buffer" format in FITS. USAGE rbf2fits infile outfile DESCRIPTION This task converts the "EXOSAT rate buffer" binary format (see "XRONOS 3" user guide for description) in FITS format suitable for XRONOS. Currently only the rate buffer type 0 and 2 are implemented. The detectors information (the second rate buffer record) is translated in FITS header keywords for the ME, GSPC, CMA (1 and 2) and TGS (1 and 2) EXOSAT detectors. PARAMETERS infile (input filename) [string] Input filename for the rate buffer. outfile (output filename) [string] Output filename for the FITS file. If the string is blank the default filename is set as the input file with extension ".lc" tchat [integer] Set the terminal chattiness. lchat [integer] Set the log file chattiness. A log file is created for values higher than 0. NOTE The rate buffer are binary format files and are platform dependent. BUGS Report problems to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. Provide a detailed description of the problem (possible a log file).
