       visir_util_spc_txt2fits - Generate spectrum calibration FITS tables


       esorex visir_util_spc_txt2fits [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This recipe shall be used to generate spectrum calibration tables.

       The  sof file shall consist of 1 line with the name of an ASCII-file currently tagged with

       The file must comprise two columns: 1st: Must be wavelengths in increasing order in  units
       of meter 2nd: For SPC_LINES_ASCII-files must be the atmospheric emission, while
            for SPC_QEFF_ASCII-files must be the quantum efficiency of the detector.

       A SPC_LINES_ASCII-file will generate a SPEC_CAL_LINES-file, and a SPC_QEFF_ASCII-file will
       generate a SPEC_CAL_QEFF-file.

       The current SPEC_CAL_LINES- and SPEC_CAL_QEFF-files are generated using the ASCII-files in
       the catalogs/ directory of the VISIR source-code distribution.


       --qeff <float>
              Ignored  (float;  default:  1.0).  The  full  name  of  this  option for the EsoRex
              configuration file is visir.visir_util_spc_txt2fits.qeff [default = 1.0].

       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'

       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.
