NAME

       fors_config - Creation of FORS recipes configuration tables

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_config [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe is used to create the so-called GRISM_TABLE, containing all the FORS spectral
       pipeline configuration parameters related to a specific grism. This is a  way  to  provide
       for each specific instrument mode a set of appropriate defaults for the recipe parameters.

       The  values  assigned  to  each input parameter of fors_config are simply copied to a FITS
       table consisting of one row, and as many columns as the input parameter: each column  will
       have  the  same  name  and type of each parameter. Only the three parameters "instrument",
       "grism", and "id" are not written to the table  columns,  but  to  the  descriptor  header
       keywords  INSTRUME,  ESO  INS  GRIS1  NAME, and ESO INS GRIS1 ID, that will be used by the
       automatic pipeline for appropriate data association.

OPTIONS

       --dispersion <float>
              Expected spectral dispersion (Angstrom/pixel) (float; default: 0.0). The full  name
              of  this  option  for  the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_config.dispersion
              [default = 0.0].

       --peakdetection <float>
              Peak detection threshold (ADU) (float; default:  250.0).  The  full  name  of  this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_config.peakdetection [default
              = 250.0].

       --wdegree <int>
              Degree of wavelength calibration polynomial (int; default: 4).  The  full  name  of
              this  option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_config.wdegree [default
              = 4].

       --cdegree <int>
              Degree of spectral curvature polynomial (int; default: 4). The full  name  of  this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_config.cdegree [default = 4].

       --startwavelength <float>
              Start  wavelength  in  spectral  extraction (float; default: 0.0). The full name of
              this option for the EsoRex configuration file  is  fors.fors_config.startwavelength
              [default = 0.0].

       --endwavelength <float>
              End  wavelength in spectral extraction (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_config.endwavelength [default
              = 0.0].

       --instrument <str>
              Name of instrument (str; default: ´0´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex
              configuration file is fors.fors_config.instrument [default = 0].

       --grism <str>
              Name of grism (str; default: ´0´). The full name of  this  option  for  the  EsoRex
              configuration file is fors.fors_config.grism [default = 0].

       --grism_id <str>
              Grism  ID  (str;  default:  ´0´).  The  full  name  of  this  option for the EsoRex
              configuration file is fors.fors_config.grism_id [default = 0].

       --filter <str>
              Name of filter (str; default: ´0´). The full name of this  option  for  the  EsoRex
              configuration file is fors.fors_config.filter [default = 0].

       --filter_id <str>
              Filter  ID  (str;  default:  ´0´).  The  full  name  of  this option for the EsoRex
              configuration file is fors.fors_config.filter_id [default = 0].

       Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing  these  options,  along
       with  suitable default values. Please refer to the details provided by the 'esorex --help'
       command.
