Context: info

Synopsis

Display the unconvolved source model

Syntax

show_source([id, outfile=None, clobber=False] )

Description

The show_source command displays the unconvolved source model. To obtain the convolved model information, use the command show_model ("ahelp show_model").

The command output looks like:

Model: 1
(xsphabs.abs1 * powlaw1d.p1)
   Param        Type          Value          Min          Max      Units
   -----        ----          -----          ---          ---      -----
   abs1.nh      thawed    0.0349312            0       100000 10^22 atoms / cm^2
   p1.gamma     thawed      1.72895          -10           10
   p1.ref       frozen            1 -3.40282e+38  3.40282e+38
   p1.ampl      thawed  4.24936e-05            0  3.40282e+38

Examples

Example 1

sherpa> show_source()

Print the source information for all datasets to the screen.

Example 2

sherpa> show_source(2, "sherpa.source", True)

Write the source information for dataset id=2 to the file "sherpa.source", 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.


Bugs

See the bugs pages on the Sherpa website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
