The reduction schedule produced covers the following stages of data reduction (in this order):
The stages which are preformed for each image depend on the type of image (TARGET, FLAT, BIAS, DARK etc.) and any processing which has already taken place. For instance if calibration masters of any type already exist then they will be used in preference to the production of any new masters. If all the TARGET frames have already been flatfielded then no further processing will be performed, if no BIAS frames of any type exist then debiassing will be performed using bias strip interpolation or by subtracting a single constant etc. Reductions which have failed (due to a lack of resources) can be "picked up" and restarted from the position at which they failed (by a re-invocation of this routine). Facilities for controlling the use of disk space are also available.
Before you can use this routine you must make sure that all the necessary information is entered into the image extensions. You can do this using the routines IMPORT or CCDSETUP and PRESENT or any combination of these which give the desired effect.
OUT="darkext"form the names of the images output from CALCOR. [-dk]
If the interpolation option is selected then the method is determined by the INTERP parameter.
OUT="debiasext"form the names of the images output from DEBIAS. [-db]
OUT="flashext"form the names of the images output from CALCOR. [-dk]
OUT="flatext"form the names of the images output from FLATCOR. [-flt]
The image names should be separated by commas and may include wildcards.
TARGET frames will only be used to create flatfields, if no flatfields (of the correct colour) are present in the input list. [FALSE]
If the logging system has been initialised using CCDSETUP, then the value specified there will be used. Otherwise, the default is "CCDPACK.LOG". [CCDPACK.LOG]
