Overriding defaults

You can override the pipeline's selection of calibration frame by using the ORAC-DR -calib command line option. Use this override judiciously, as in general the pipeline does a fine job.

The ORAC-DR -calib command line option is used by giving comma separated key=value pairs (e.g. '-calib dark=file1,bias=file2'). The following keys can be used for general instruments. Specific instruments may have extra calibration overrides that can be used.

When files are given the extension should be left off. As an example, if you have made a new bad pixel mask and wish to use it with ORAC-DR, the following command would be used:

 oracdr -calib mask=new_bpm
