AHELP for CIAO 4.11 Sherpa v1

save_table

Context: saving

Synopsis

Save a Sherpa data set to a FITS or ASCII file.

Syntax

save_table( [id,] filename )

Description

The save_table command saves a dataset to a FITS or column-based ASCII file. DM ASCII syntax is used to indicate that the output should be ASCII ("ahelp dmascii"). This command has no return value.

There are several other save commands available: save_image and save_pha are recommended for those datatypes, while save_data allows the user to specify additional output options when saving to an ASCII file (column names, comment character, and separator).


Examples

Example 1

sherpa> save_table("data.fits")

Dataset 1 is saved to a FITS file named "data.fits".

Example 2

sherpa> save_table(2, "output.dat[opt kernel=text/simple]")

The DM ASCII syntax is used with save_table to write dataset 2 to a text file.
