Spectral Atlas File: The information for each galaxy consists of a header plus the co-added spectra and is separated from the next object by a blank line (record). See the documentation (adc.doc or doc.tex) for complete explanations. The following "Description" shows the structure of the data records of the first spectrum (1050+04) which can for instance be generated on a Unix machine by the shell command: zcat atlas.Z | awk '/^ *LAM / { insp=1; next} /^$/{if (insp ≡ 1) exit}{if (insp ≡ 1) print}' > sp ("insp" is a awk variable set to 1 as long as the lines correspond to the first spectrum, which is starting just after the line containing " LAM " and ending at a blank record): Description of file: sp (after creation) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bytes Format Units Label Explanations -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2- 7 F6.1 0.1nm LAM Wavelength 9- 14 F6.0 --- EPS Epsilon value (see doc) 16- 23 F8.0 FN GROSS Gross flux 25- 32 F8.0 FN BKG Background flux 36- 42 F7.2 FN/s NET Net flux per time unit 44- 53 E10.3 10mW/m2/nm ABNET Absolutely calibrated net flux 55- 63 F9.2 s TIME Exposure time 67- 73 F7.4 --- SIGMA Error in the mean (see doc)
