- Simple python client
- This file, xarpc.py, is also available in the xassist/scripts/ directory of the current xassist download. It has a few simple functions that resolve coordinate names, query for the HEASARC tables for available Chandra, XMM-Newton and Suzaku data, and search for detections within the XAssist XMM-Newton or Chandra pipelines. Future versions will also be able to request processing or request that the products (spectra, responses, images, and light curves) be extracted at a given position. Type "python xarpc.py" for help. Run "python xarpc.py test" to verify that it is working properly and that your network connection is ok (port 8002 is used which may be blocked by some firewalls).
