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.

Device not recognizederror 
 Unavailable default device type and/or output file
 
Output file cannot be overwrittenerror 
 The output file exists, and the variable SAS_CLOBBER=0
 
GTI file does not existerror 
 The GTI file supplied does not exist
 
NoGTIswarning 
 
corrective action: The GTI file contains no GTIs, so no power density spectrum can be created
 
NotEnoughBinswarning 
 
corrective action: There are not enough good bins to create the power density spectrum, no output plot file created
 
Unavailable device type and/or output filewarning 
 
corrective action: Action : the device type and output file are set to defaults.
 
nbins must be a power of two lower than NBINLC (the number of bins in the light curve)warning 
 nbins must be a power of two lower than NBINLC (the number of bins in the light curve)
corrective action: nbins is set to nearest power of 2 lower than NBINLC
 
rebintype is positive but not an integerwarning 
 rebintype is positive but not an integer
corrective action: The value is set to the nearest positive integer
 
rebintype is negative and outside the allowed range.warning 
 rebintype is negative and outside the allowed range.
corrective action: rebintype is set to 1 (no rebinning)
 
Some header keywords are missing or inconsistentwarning 
 Some header keywords are missing or inconsistent
corrective action: A warning is raised and the task attempts to proceed
