# show_data¶

sherpa.astro.ui.show_data(id=None, outfile=None, clobber=False)

Summarize the available data sets.

Display information on the data sets that have been loaded. The details depend on the type of the data set (e.g. 1D, image, PHA files).

Parameters
• id (int or str, optional) – The data set. If not given then all data sets are displayed.

• outfile (str, optional) – If not given the results are displayed to the screen, otherwise it is taken to be the name of the file to write the results to.

• clobber (bool, optional) – If outfile is not None, then this flag controls whether an existing file can be overwritten (True) or if it raises an exception (False, the default setting).

Raises

sherpa.utils.err.IOErr – If outfile already exists and clobber is False.
