No changes to the code base. I cleaned up a lot of typos in the E-SPECROAD pages and clarified some of the information about comparison spectra in the User's Guide.
|April 15, 2013||Finally got around to including a stripped down version of Pat Wallace's SLAlib that doesn't require people request a copy of the code from Pat Wallace.
And if anyone sees this, I would appreciate hearing from anyone who got External SPECROAD working under 64-bit versions of IRAF. I suspect it will take bothering Jessica Mink at the CFA to update the various required IRAF packages, but curious to hear.

Fixed a bug reported by Megan Kiminki in specroadobj that I introduced in the last update. Also working on isolating problem with HPRESCREEN with a minor tweak to the code there.
In order to upgrade to this version of E-SPECROAD from a previous version (any hectoshell distribution dated before June 25, 2009), you will need to

A set of minor edits were made to specroadobj to allow it to call HLIN without assuming the value of the

A minor edit to HPRESCREEN to make it a bit more through in listing files that you might want to remove before running. Still not perfect, but useful for pruning files earlier in

There were three changes made since the release of the previous version of E-SPECROAD:
|June 19, 2009||
Additional tweaks to E-SPECROAD to allow it to handle data with a variety of gratings and tilts with minimal user interaction. I have added the automatic determination of wavelength ranges in the spectra before linearization (with user interaction to tweak it if desired) as well as automatically selection of the appropriate sky line.
Finally, I updated the installation instructions a bit to reflect the updated requirements and to deal with an issue I discovered on a local installation with the wcstools from Scisoft conflicting with the one installed as part of the installation. To help users, I have also added a section at the end of the installation to help users double-check that everything is installed properly and working well.
|June 15, 2009||
Released the first version of E-SPECROAD that works without a hitch on 600gpm data centered at 4800Å, which is the data I have!
To upgrade to the current version of E-SPECROAD, users will also need to update their hectospec and rvsao IRAF package installations to the latest version (links are in the installation instructions), as well as downloading the current hectoshell distribution for their platform. The installation instructions and user's guide have been updated for all the new changes.
|June 4, 2009||Placed a new version of my line list for the HeNeAr lamp at the Hectospec (during summer 2007). In this version, I commented out some of the lines I have found to provide consistently poor fits, due mostly to asymmetric line shapes. This line list for the 600gpm grating centered at 4800Å is called idhenear.600gpm_4800_best.dat, The corresponding spectral altas images were updated to flag the bad lines.|

I forgot to make the awk script,
|June 2, 2009||
I also updated the high resolution Blue HeNeAr spectral atlas (Hectospec_HeNeAr_600gpm_4800.pdf) to correct a few errors (some lines I had found to be unreliable were in the plots and some lines I have been using in my line list were not labeled).

No changes to the code base, just made changes to the installation instructions to add some additional experience with Scientific Linux distributions and recommending the use of symbolic links for easier upgrading of IRAF packages.
In last year, 8 external groups of users have tested the August 8 codebase, at least half successfully using it to reduce their data, so I know it can work. I will refine the code as time permits.
|August 8, 2008||Added a Linux version, just to reduce the amount of editting a Linux user would have to do (and to allow some of my collaborators to install the scripts more easily). Also fixed up the
