catcorr (catcorr-0.11.1) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


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.

 The program runs anyway, this is mainly for information
corrective action: The OBSMLI file has already been processed by catcorr or eposcorr
 The message indicates the location of the error in the software, but it is likely to be a defect in the FITS structure which is the cause.
 In computing a histogram of position angles a bin is out of range: should not happen please report to the helpdesk
 This is a result of rounding errors and does not matter
corrective action: In computing a histogram of position angles a bin is out of range
 This is used only to correct proper motions in the USNO-B1 catalog, and will not have a large effect
corrective action: The DATE-OBS value cannot be decoded
 Cannot open the catalogue extracts file produced by catprep
 FITS file does not have a column of required information
 FITS table does not have a required header keyword
 The OBSMLI file specified cannot be opened
 In this FITS file HDU2 is not binary table as expected.
 A fit will be produced based on the maximum number of pairs that can be stored
corrective action: There are too many pairs of detections for cross-matching
