The Continuum File: xout_cont1.fits

The continuum luminosities and optical depths are printed in columns to this ascii fits file. For each energy channel we print: channel index, energy (eV), transmitted and reflected luminosity (in units of 10$^{38}$ erg s$^{-1}$ erg$^{-1}$), and optical depth in the forward and backward directions. In this file lines are not added to the continuum (new in version 2.1).
