Extracting and Requesting Data Products

Some databases have associated products, such as images, light-curves and event files. These products are either stored on-line on magnetic hard disk, or on a near-line CD-ROM jukebox. In BROWSE, products are obtained using the xp and request commands for on-line and near-line data respectively. Note that a feature of these commands is that all products associated with an entry are listed as options, ie. both on- and near-line data. Requesting data using the wrong command will result in an error message. This is a feature of the software.

For reference, the following are the only data types that are on CR-ROM, all other data files are on-line:

  • ROSPUBLIC - PSPC/HRI datasets ``DATASET ROD"
  • ROSWFCPUB - WFC datasets ``DATASET ROD"
  • ASCAPUB - Unscreened data ``UNSCREENED"
  • ASCAPUB - Screened data ``SCREENED"
  • ASCAPUB - Housekeeping (AUX) files ``HKFILES"
