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.

getparamvalues01error 
 blank input event file name
 
getparamvalues03error 
 PUT_XY not run before
 
getparamvalues06error 
 MAKE_E not run and correctgain=Y
 
readBkg01error 
 unexpected data type in diagnostic background map
 
readBkg02error 
 array too small in diagnostic background map
 
readBkg03error 
 not 2-D array in diagnostic background map
 
readBkg04error 
 diagnostic background map not compatible with event file
 
readBkg05error 
 useccfdarkframe=yes and missing offset/variance extension
 
evflagImage13warning 
 flagevents=yes and a bad pixel has invalid coordinates in IMAGING mode. It will be ignored
corrective action: inform SOC (this is probably an error in the CCF)
 
evflagTime13warning 
 flagevents=yes and a bad pixel has invalid coordinates in TIMING mode. It will be ignored
corrective action: inform SOC (this is probably an error in the CCF)
 
subDark10warning 
 background subtraction from the CCF or an external file modifies the energies. It cannot be run twice on the same data
corrective action: restart from the output of emevents if you want the full precision of the background subtraction
 
readBkg12warning 
 dimensions of the diagnostic background map larger than CCD size. Use anyway
corrective action: check this is not a mistake in the input image file
 
getparamvalues10warning 
 no EXPOSURE extension. The CCD-specific keywords will be forgotten after merging the CCDs
corrective action: restart with emevents if you want the EXPOSURE extension
 
getparamvalues11warning 
 flagevents=yes and EVFLAG already done before. Not repeated
corrective action: restart from the output of emevents if you really want EVFLAG to run anew
 
getparamvalues12warning 
 useccfdarkframe=Y or maskedccdset set in Timing mode. Not done
corrective action: these options cannot be used in Timing mode
 
getparamvalues13warning 
 Reduced Imaging data and getccdbkg=Y. Not done
corrective action: this option cannot be used on Reduced Imaging data
 
getparamvalues19warning 
 makepha=Y and background subtraction from the CCF or an external file already done before. Decimal digits will be lost
corrective action: restart from the output of emevents if you want the full precision of the background subtraction
 
getparamvalues20warning 
 the event file is empty. Nothing done
corrective action: check this is normal
 
getparamvalues22warning 
 not Imaging data and rejectbade3e4=Y. Not done
corrective action: this option can be used only in full Imaging mode
 
getparamvalues26warning 
 slew data and getccdbkg=Y. Not done
corrective action: this option cannot be used on slew data
