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.

tooFewBandserror 
 The user has supplied no elements to parameter bandlist.
 
noCifSpecifiederror 
 The user has not set the environment variable SAS_CCF.
 
noProductSubdirectoryerror 
 The directory specified in prodsdir was not found.
 
outputExistserror 
 The output file exists but clobberprods was not set.
 
notYetSupportederror 
 The user asked for an OM colour image. Can't do this yet.
 
badInstrumenterror 
 The value of instrument was not recognized.
 
someImagesNotFounderror 
 The task has looked in prodsdir for images which match the bands specified in bandlist, but not all the required images were found.
 
maskAllZeroserror 
 One of the exposure maps was found to contain all zeros.
 
expMapNotFounderror 
 Can't run asmooth because no exposure map was found.
 
templateImageIsFlaterror 
 No point in running asmooth on the template image because it is flat.
 
templateAsmoothFailederror 
 The task attempted to invoke asmooth to make the template image but failed.
 
asmoothFailederror 
 The task attempted to invoke asmooth but failed.
 
allImagesFlaterror 
 All the images are flat. No point in making 3-colour plots!
 
allImagesZeroerror 
 All the input images are zero-valued.
 
colimplotFailederror 
 The task attempted to invoke colimplot but failed.
 
noProdFileserror 
 No matching files were found in prodsdir.
 
badFimgstaterror 
 Couldn't get sensible result from fimgstat.
 
inTestModewarning 
 The astest parameter is set: no files will be written.
corrective action: The task proceeds in test mode.
 
tooFewObswarning 
 The number of observations is fewer than the required obsindex.
corrective action: The task uses the last in the sequence of observations for obsindex.
 
tooFewExposureswarning 
 The number of exposures is fewer than the required expindex.
corrective action: The task uses the last in the sequence of exposures for expindex.
 
expMapNotFoundwarning 
 No exposure map was found for this observation+instrument+exposure.
corrective action: colimplot is run with –withmask=no
 

Note: The task does not at present use the error interface, but uses internal message, warning and error functions. The warning and error labels are therefore not relevant and have been omitted.
