       vmifucombinecube  -  Rearrange  into  cube  format  images of extracted spectraproduced by
       vmifucalib, vmifuscience, and vmifustandard.


       esorex vmifucombinecube [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This recipe is used to rearrange into a single cube the images of extracted  spectra  from
       different   VIMOS   quadrants.   Such  images  are  created  by  the  recipes  vmifucalib,
       vmifuscience, and vmifustandard, and the classification tag of the product depends on  the
       classification tag of the inputs:

                Input                         Output


       The  input  images must belong to different quadrants, so that they cannot be more than 4.
       The allocated cubes are the smallest  possible,  depending  on  the  number  of  quadrants
       involved  and  on  whether the IFU shutter was on or off. The smallest cubes (20x20xN) are
       produced when just one quadrant is input  and  the  shutter  was  on.  The  largest  cubes
       (80x80xN)  are  produced  when  3  or  more  quadrants are given in input (and when either
       quadrants 1 and 3, or 2 and 4, are input), and the shutter was off.  Pixels  belonging  to
       missing quadrants are padded with zeroes if necessary.


       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'
