       fors_flatfield - Flat field correction of input frame


       esorex fors_flatfield [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This  recipe is used to divide the input frame by the normalised flat field frame produced
       by recipe fors_normalise_flat. The input frame must be already bias subtracted  (e.g.,  by
       recipe fors_remove_bias).

       In the table below the MXU acronym can be alternatively read as MOS and LSS.

       Input files:

         DO category:               Type:       Explanation:         Required:
         or STANDARD_UNBIAS_MXU     Raw         Bias subtracted frame   Y
         MASTER_NORM_FLAT_MXU       Calib       Normalised flat frame   Y

       Output files:

         DO category:               Data type:  Explanation:
         or STANDARD_UNFLAT_MXU     FITS image  Flat field corrected frame


       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'


       The  full  documentation  for  the fors pipeline can be downloaded as a PDF file using the
       following URL:


       An  overview  over  the  existing  ESO  pipelines  can  be   found   on   the   web   page

       Basic documentation about the EsoRex program can be found at the esorex (1) man page.

       It  is  possible  to  call  the  pipelines  from python using the python-cpl package.  See for further information.
