Spectrum Units (spectun)

The appropriate units for the spectrum file specified above (1=photons cm$^{-2}$ s$^{-1}$ erg$^{-1}$, 0=erg cm$^{-2}$ s$^{-1}$ erg$^{-1}$). Default is 0

New in version 221bn18 is a feature which allows reading in of table spectra in units of log10(F$_\varepsilon$), where F$_\varepsilon$ has units erg cm$^{-2}$ s$^{-1}$ erg$^{-1}$. This requires that the spectun input parameter be set to 2.
