wfss_contam step uses the following optional arguments.
A boolean indicating whether the full-frame simulated grism image containing all simulated spectra within the field-of-view should be saved to a file. The file name uses a product type suffix of “simul”. Defaults to
A boolean indicating whether the estimated contamination images for each source cutout should be saved to a file. The file name uses a product type suffix of “contam”. The resulting file has one SCI extension for each source contained in the input grism image. Defaults to
The fraction of available cores that will be used for multi-processing in this step. The default value is ‘none’ which does not use multi-processing. The other options are ‘quarter’, ‘half’, and ‘all’. Note that these fractions refer to the total available cores and on most CPUs these include physical and virtual cores.
