Standard steps

The following steps constitute a standard reduction as implemented by the monolithic ECHOMOP task. The user can follow this sequence by hitting carriage return at each main menu prompt, and supplying data frame names and parameters when they are prompted for.

The demonstration provided by ECH_DEMO follows this sequence and the reader is encouraged to try it before using the package in earnest.

Steps 9 through 12 would be omitted if no wavelength calibration was required. Step 5 would be omitted if no flat field was available.

In cases where multiple object frames have been taken, it would be efficient to use only steps 6,7,8,11,12 for additional frames.

A quick look extraction may be performed as soon as step 4 has been completed (option 20).
