*upspecrdf, downspecrdf* - Transform between RDF and pre-RDF spectral tables

With the advent of RDF, the output from qpspec (for most instruments) has been divided into three tables: counts source off-axis histogram background off-axis histogram

Tasks downspecrdf, and upspecrdf translate between RDF and pre-RDF formats. upspecrdf will be useful to re-analyze previously extracted spectral data; downspecrdf is currently necessary for use with proscon (version 2.2), the translation program for input into xspec, which does not work with RDF data.
