Example - Creating a QPOE file from CD ROM Data

Suppose you want to create a qpoe file (with standard screening) for sequence 2952. Use ecdinfo to tell you which CD ROM to use:
ei> ecdinfo
FITS filename OR sequence number (2952): 
Einstein instrument (ipc|hri) (ipc): 
Datatype (event|image|slew|unscreened) (unscreened): event

FITS root: i2357s64, extension: a, sequence 2952.

Title: I02952 MX2348-65 (MX2348-65: X-RAY TRANSIENTS AND NOVA-LIKE OBJECTS).

Ra=23:57:59.8, Dec=-64:05:59.5, livetime: 2020.57 seconds.

This sequence should be on the CDROM in the directory ipcevt4$.
The sequence you require is on the 4th IPC Event Lists CD ROM. Load the CD ROM into your reader (assumed to be mounted as /cdrom), and set the location of the disk and with eincdpar
ei> eincdpar.ipcevt4="/cdrom/"
Then use ecd2pros to create the QPOE file;
ei> ecd2pros
input FITS file name OR sequence number: 2952
Einstein instrument (hri|ipc): ipc
datatype of FITS file (event|image|slew|unscreened): event
root name for output files (.): i2952

Using FITS file /cdrom/data/23h/i2357s64.xpa to create QPOE file.

Writing output QPOE file: i2952.qp

aux=.convtgr, type=convtgr -> i2952.qp
