Next: GENERAL section
The main sections of the header contain some fundamental parameters
which are unique for all the spectrum. This is a problem for the
output spectrum from ACCUMULATE or AVERAGE which may contain different part
coming from a various number of spectra (e.g. in COMPOSITE
mode). Actually, only the INTERSECT mode with SET BAD OR
ensures that the same number of input spectra have been used to
compute the non-bad channels of the output spectrum.
Nevertheless, typical values have to be given to these
parameters. First of all, when adding a new spectrum with the
, the header of the output sum
is completely copied from header. Then specific
values of the different sections of the header are adjusted.
