Display the optimization method
show_method([outfile=None, clobber=False] )
The show_method command displays the current optimization method and parameters.
- outfile - name of the file in which to store the information
- clobber - a Boolean switch which indicates whether or not the 'outfile' should be overwritten, if the file already exists; default=False
The command output looks like:
Optimization Method: NelderMead name = simplex ftol = 1.1920928955078125e-07 maxfev = None initsimplex = 0 finalsimplex = 9 step = None iquad = 1 verbose = 0
Print the optimization method to the screen.
sherpa> show_method("sherpa.method", True)
Write the optimization method to the file "sherpa.method", clobbering any existing file with the same name.
Changes in CIAO 4.12
PAGER environment variable is no-longer used
Paging of the screen output is now handled by Python rather than using an external tool defined by the PAGER environment variable. This means that paged output should now appear in Jupyter notebooks.
See the bugs pages on the Sherpa website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
