Errors

This section documents warnings and errors generated by this task (if any). Note that warnings and errors can also be generated in the SAS infrastructure libraries, in which case they would not be documented here. Refer to the index of all errors and warnings available in the HTML version of the SAS documentation.

badInputerror 
 No, or incorrectly named extension in input events file
 
badInstrumenterror 
 Instrument not supported
 
badModeerror 
 Mode not supported
 
noBadpixfindModeserror 
 No badpixfind modes chosen
 
nonEqualListserror 
 userflagbadpix lists (rawx, rawy, type, yextent) must be of equal size
 
badThresholdserror 
 low threshold values must be less than high threshold values (also, for thresholdlabel = PEAK, threshold values must be in range 0–100
 
userListValuesOutOfRangeerror 
 some userflagbadpix list input values are invalid
 
badLothresherror 
 Lothresh value finds too many ($>$10000) dead pixels - dataset is probably filled with many zeros
 
noGoodPixsFoundwarning 
 No good pixels found
corrective action: Continue with `thresholds OK?' message
 
eventsOutOfWindowwarning 
 Events found outside of RAWX/RAWY window - these are ignored
corrective action: Continue with warning message
 
eventsOutOfOrderwarning 
 Events out of time order - flickering analysis may be in error
corrective action: Continue with warning message
 
insufficientDatawarning 
 insufficient data (events/timeslots) to perform flickering analysis - aborted
corrective action: Continue with warning message - no flickering analysis
 
findRealSourceswarning 
 Chosen narrowerthanpsf parameter is very low - real sources may be found
corrective action: Continue with warning message
 
badEnergyThresholdswarning 
 hienergythresh must be greater than loenergythresh - no Energy filtering performed
corrective action: Continue with no energy filtering
 
lowExposurewarning 
 Exposure time very low - spurious bad pixels may be found (low number statistics)
corrective action: Continue with warning message
