||File name of SAV file, without .SAV extension.
||There are three different options for writing the FITS file.
The mode parameter should be 1, 2, or 3, depending on which format is desired.
||A FITS header is generated and can be output as a string array if
If set, the procedure will not check for a pre-existing copy
of the output file. Note that on VMS systems a new version would be created
and the pre-existing file not destroyed. However, on UNIX or ULTRIX systems,
the old file would be overwritten.
The output file SAVFILE.FIT is created. Note that the wavelengths must be monotonic if modes 2 or 3 are used (e.g., the vacuum-to-air discontinuity at 2000 Å will cause problems).
SAV files can be converted to ASCII format with a program called SAVASC. SAVASC reads the specified .SAV file (created by IUESAVE) and writes it back out in three columns containing wavelengths, fluxes, and quality flags, with eight lines of header information at the top.
|SAVFILE||The name of the SAV file (without the .SAV extension).|
|textfile||The name of the ASCII file to be written. Default extension is .TXT. If not given SAVFILE.TXT is written.|
|overwrite||Normally, the program checks to see if textfile already exists. If this keyword is set, it will overwrite the existing file.|
There is no software to convert SAV files to RDAF or GO format.
