ACS2D

The acs2d module contains a function acs2d that calls the ACS2D executable. Use this function to facilitate batch runs of ACS2D.

Examples

>>> from acstools import acs2d
>>> acs2d.acs2d('*blv_tmp.fits')

For help usage use exe_args=['--help'].

acstools.acs2d.acs2d(input, exec_path='', time_stamps=False, verbose=False, quiet=False, exe_args=None)

Run the acs2d.e executable as from the shell.

Output is automatically named based on input suffix:

INPUT

OUTPUT

EXPECTED DATA

*_raw.fits

*_flt.fits

SBC image.

*_blv_tmp.fits

*_flt.fits

ACSCCD output.

*_blc_tmp.fits

*_flc.fits

ACSCCD output with PCTECORR.

*_crj_tmp.fits

*_crj.fits

ACSREJ output.

*_crc_tmp.fits

*_crc.fits

ACSREJ output with PCTECORR.

Parameters
  • input (str or list of str) –

    Input filenames in one of these formats:

    • a single filename (‘j1234567q_blv_tmp.fits’)

    • a Python list of filenames

    • a partial filename with wildcards (‘*blv_tmp.fits’)

    • filename of an ASN table (‘j12345670_asn.fits’)

    • an at-file (@input)

  • exec_path (str, optional) – The complete path to ACS2D executable. If not given, run ACS2D given by ‘acs2d.e’.

  • time_stamps (bool, optional) – Set to True to turn on the printing of time stamps.

  • verbose (bool, optional) – Set to True for verbose output.

  • quiet (bool, optional) – Set to True for quiet output.

  • exe_args (list, optional) – Arbitrary arguments passed to underlying executable call. Note: Implementation uses subprocess.call and whitespace is not permitted. E.g. use exe_args=[‘–nThreads’, ‘1’]
