       kmo_fit_profile  -  Fit  spectral  line profiles as well as spatial profiles with a simple
       function - for example to measure resolution or find the centre of a source


       esorex kmo_fit_profile [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This recipe creates either spectral or spatial  profiles  of  sources  using  dif-  ferent
       functions  to  fit.  Spectral profiles can be created for F1I frames (if WCS is defined in
       the input frame, the output parameters are in respect to the defined WCS).

       Spatial profiles can be created for F2I frames (any WCS information is ignored here).

       If the frames contain no noise information, constant noise  is  assumed  for  the  fitting

       --method F1I frames can be fitted using either ´gauss´, ´moffat´ or ´lorentz´ function.

       F2I frames can be fitted using either ´gauss´ or ´moffat´ function.

       --range For F1I frames the spectral range can be defined. With available WCS informa- tion
       the range can be provided in units (e.g. “1.2;1.5”), otherwise in pixels (e.g. “112;224).

       For F2I frames the spatial range can be defined as follow: “x1,x2;y1,y2”

       --method <str>
              Either fit "gauss", "moffat"  or  "lorentz"  for  1D  data.Either  fit  "gauss"  or
              "moffat"  for  2D  data.  (str; default: ´gauss´). The full name of this option for
              the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmo_fit_profile.method [default = gauss].

       --range <str>
              The spectral or spatial range to combine. Default is the whole  range.   e.g.  F1I:
              "0.5,2.1" (microns), e.g. F2I: "1,7;3,10" (pixels: x1,x2;y1,y2), pixels are counted
              from 1.  (str;  default:  ´´).  The  full  name  of  this  option  for  the  EsoRex
              configuration file is kmos.kmo_fit_profile.range [default = ].

       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'
