omthlcplot (omthlcplot-1.5) [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.

Keyword TIMEDEL missingerror 
 The keyword TIMEDEL is missing
Keyword TSTART missingerror 
 The keyword TSTART is missing
Keyword TSTOP missingerror 
 The keyword TSTOP is missing
Existing output file cannot be overwrittenerror 
 The output file exists, and cannot be overwitten because the SAS_CLOBBER variable is set to 0
Unavailable default device type and/or output fileerror 
 Unavailable default device type and/or output file
Input file has null or negative bin widtherror 
 The keyword TIMEDEL is zero or has a negative value. This must be a positive value and indicates an error in the TIMEDEL value
Unavailable device type and/or output filewarning 
 The device type and output file are set to the defaults. In this way, omthlcplot can be executed
corrective action: No corrective action is required, although subsequent executions of the task should use a valid output device type
Data points to plot must not exceed 500warning 
 Plotting more than 500 data points, results in a very large output file and plots which are overcrowded, hence the number of points are limited
corrective action: The binsize is automatically increased until the number of points to plot is lower than 500 [1]
Keywords are missing from the input filewarning 
 Some header keywords are missing or inconsistent. Key words expected are TSTART, TIMEDEL and TSTOP and the values OGIP, TOTAL, LIGHTCURVE, and RATE in the attributes HDUCLASS, HDUCLAS1, HDUCLAS2, and HDUCLAS2 respectively
corrective action: A warning is raised and the task tries to proceed
Binning_Factor must be positivewarning 
 The binning factor specified by the user, is less than unity. This must be at least unity
corrective action: The binning factor is automatically set to unity. Future executions of omthlcplot should use a binning factor of at least unity
