Display the fit statistic
The show_stat command displays the current fit statistic.
- 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 first line of the command output looks like
where the second word will reflect the name of the chosen statistic. It will be followed by the contents of the Python docstring for the statistic object, which is similar to the "ahelp" output for that statistic.
Print the statistic to the screen.
sherpa> show_stat("sherpa.stat", clobber=True)
Write the fit statistic information to the file "sherpa.stat", 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.
