The Extractor tool

The Extractor is a tool to read the HDF5 output files produced by PDR 1.5.2, PDRLight and the shock code. The Extractor allows to navigate in the quantities computed by these codes, to select some of them and extract them in ASCII or VO-Table format. Results can be send directly to VO plotting softwares.

Note: The Extractor can be used either with a graphical interface or in script mode. When the same quantities have to be extracted for a large number of models, it is recommended to use it in script mode.

  To use the Extractor in script mode
1 – Open a model in graphical mode
2 – Select the quantities to extract and ask to save the script
3 – Run the script from a terminal:
python2.7 extractor.py -f ModelName.hdf5 -t ScriptName.esf -o ResultFileName.dat

The Chemistry Analyser tool

The Chemistry analyser is a tool to perform a detailed analysis of the chemical state computed by the codes available on the ISM platform. The software presents, in a graphical user interface, schematic visualization of the formation and destruction mechanisms of any species, and displays all the information necessary to analyse a given chemical state.

So far, the Chemistry analyser tool is compatible with the HDF5 files produced by the PDR 1.5.2, PDRLight and the shock code.

The PDRAnalyser tool (outdated)

The PDRAnalyser tool is a java program used to read the outputs of the PDR code versions 1.4.x that are in XML and FITS formats. Versions 1.4.x of the Meudon PDR code are no more maintained as well as the PDRAnalyser tool. We recommend to use more recent versions of the PDR code with the Extractor tool.

 To use PDRAnalyser in script mode
1 – Open a model in graphical mode
2 – In menu File, select “Script Builder”
3 – Select the quantities to extract and save the script
4 – Run the script from a terminal:
./pdranalyser.sh script.xml PATH/model.xml result.txt
