Buglog #553 -- SPLOT

Bug Logs NUMBER: 553
MODULE: splot
SYSTEM: -V2.12.3
DATE: Tue May 16 11:08:14 MST 2006
FROM: valdes

BUG: If SPLOT is run more than once without flushing the process (flpr) then the default aperture will be that from the last execution. The consequence is that use of an image section to select an aperture in a multiaperture file may not display the intended spectrum. The workaround is to use the command "flpr" before using an image section.

STATUS: Fixed for the next release.

Code Snippets For quite a while now users have been running into problems associated with the ESO convention of using HIERARCH keywords in their headers. This became a common enough issue that we developed a script to help deal with it. That script never made it into the core system, but the explanatory text and script itself is posted here.

The V2.13 beta-release of the Mac/Intel port has been updated to now include a port to Cygwin under Windows XP SP2 as well as a number of minor bug fixes to the Mac/Intel port and back-ports to other platforms (Linux and OSX/ppc). Current beta users should update their systems using a complete install of the system, X11IRAF updates will follow shortly. Features are still planned and the final packaging has yet to be done, but this is a fully functional release of IRAF, X11IRAF, various external packages and DS9, all with native Mac/Intel and Cygwin binaries.

Please report any problems, bugs, or suggestions to the forum thread started on this topic. The beta may be updated occassionally if serious bugs are found or major new features added, and all users should update to the final release once it is ready. Detailed, if quick, release notes are in the body of the message. For the impatient, here is a link to the distribution directory.

(Update: 4/24/06) DS9 now linked to correct 4.0b9 macintel binary.
(Update 8/30/06) New native Mac/Intel and PPC binaries for X11IRAF now available from the downloads page

Bug Logs NUMBER: 552
MODULE: imcombine
SYSTEM: V2.12.2
DATE: Tue Feb 28 14:07:30 MST 2006
FROM: valdes

BUG: When the combine option is sum and weighting is selected an exception occurs. The sum option was added as a later feature and a flag needed for weighting was not set. There is no workaround to combine weighting and summing directly. One can use "average" and the scale the result to the equivalent of a sum.

STATUS: Fixed for V2.12.3.
