14.2 Listing file content


It is possible to list part (i.e. a range of records) of the content of a XAS tabular file (i.e. a spectrum, time profile or photon list, but not an image) at the terminal using the command
tlist [ file records
which produces an ASCII listing of the binary content of all columns in the file in an appropriate format.

As a particular convenience, in the case of time profiles, the TIME column (which is stored internally as a double precision number of seconds since midnight of a reference day) may be presented in the more usual form hh:mm:ss.ff if the following environment variable is set

xasset hms Yes
