To help you understand the material in this Data Handbook, we will use a few consistent typographic conventions.
The following typographic cues are used:
- bold words identify the name of task of package name from Python (and historical IRAF/PyRAF when necessary).
typewriter-likewords identify a file name, system command, or response that is typed or displayed.
- italic type indicates a new term, an important point, a mathematical variable, a task parameter, or a satellite name.
SMALL CAPSidentifies a header keyword.
- ALL CAPS identifies a table column.
Occasional side comments point out four types of information, each identified with a different border color and symbol on the left-hand side of the box.
Warning: You could corrupt data, produce incorrect results, or create some other kind of severe problem.
Heads up: Here is something that is often done incorrectly of that is not obvious.
Tip: No problems...just another way to do something or a suggestion that might make your life easier.
