       test_hough - Test Hough transform on any table of points


       esorex test_hough [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This recipe is used to test the Hough transformation on any table.

       Input files:

         DO category:      Type:       Explanation:
         TABLE             Raw         Table with at least 2 numerical columns.

       Output files:

         DO category:      Data type:  Explanation:
         TRANSFORMED       FITS table  Table with estimates.


       --xcolumn <str>
              Table  column  with  x coordinate (str; default: ´0´). The full name of this option
              for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.test_hough.xcolumn [default = 0].

       --ycolumn <str>
              Table column with y coordinate (str; default: ´0´). The full name  of  this  option
              for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.test_hough.ycolumn [default = 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.
