       visir_util_spc_std_cat - Generate a FITS catalog of spectroscopic standard stars


       esorex visir_util_spc_std_cat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This  recipe  shall be used to generate a FITS catalog of spectroscopic standard stars for
       the VISIR pipeline.

       The sof file shall consist of lines with the name of an ASCII-file named  <Star_Name>.txt,
       e.g. HD133165.txt and the tag SPC_CAT_ASCII.

       All input ASCII-files must comprise the same number of lines.

       The first line of the ASCII-file must have 6 fields separated by white-space.

       The  first  three  fields are the RA (hh mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table
       column labeled ´RA´ - all three are non-negative and hh and mm are integer.

       The 3 last fields are the DEC (dd mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table column
       labeled ´DEC´ - all three are non-negative, dd and mm are integer, and dd has either a ´+´
       or a ´-´ prepended (including -00).

       The remaining lines must all consist of two fields separated by white-space.

       The first field is the wavelength (in microns) and the second the (positive) model flux in
       W/m2/m. The wavelengths must be identical in all the input files.


       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 visir 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.
