- [VIS] A set of n RAW frames (Format = RAW, n>=3, Tag = FLAT_mode_VIS)
- [NIR] A set of n x n RAW frames ((Format = RAW, n>=3, Tag = FLAT_mode_NIR_ON, FLAT_mode_NIR_OFF)
- A spectral format table (Format = PRE, Tag = SPECTRAL_FORMAT_TAB_arm)
- An order table (Format = TABLE, Tag = ORDER_TAB_CENTR_arm)
- [UVB,VIS] A master bias (Format = PRE, Tag = MASTER_BIAS_arm)
- [OPTIONAL] A map of reference bad pixel (Format = QUP,RAW, Tag = BP_MAP_RP_arm)
- [OPTIONAL] A map of non linear pixel (Format = QUP,RAW, Tag = BP_MAP_NL_arm)
- [OPTIONAL,UVB,VIS] A master dark (Format = PRE, Tag = MASTER_DARK_arm)
Products :
- An updated order table with edge UP and edge LOW (Format = TABLE, TAG = ORDER_TAB_EDGES_mode_arm)

--detectorder-edges-search-win-hsize <long>
During extraction the local spatial profile (=cross-order) of the spectrum is determined by collapsing the 2-dimensional spectrum along the dispersion axis. This parameter defines the half size of the region across which the spectrum is collapsed. This parameter affects flagged pixels interpolation.
