- sherpa.astro.ui.save_table(id, filename=None, ascii=False, clobber=False)
Save a data set to a file as a table.
ascii (bool, optional) – If
Falsethen the data is written as a FITS format binary table. The default is
False. The exact format of the output file depends on the I/O library in use (Crates or AstroPy).
clobber (bool, optional) – If
None, then this flag controls whether an existing file can be overwritten (
True) or if it raises an exception (
False, the default setting).
sherpa.utils.err.IOErr – If
filenamealready exists and
The function does not follow the normal Python standards for parameter use, since it is designed for easy interactive use. When called with a single un-named argument, it is taken to be the
filenameparameter. If given two un-named arguments, then they are interpreted as the
filenameparameters, respectively. The remaining parameters are expected to be given as named arguments.
Write the data set to the file “table.fits”:
Write the data from the data set ‘jet’ to the file “jet.dat”, as an ASCII file:
>>> save_table('jet', 'jet.dat', ascii=True, clobber=True)
