Key line:
/QUALCD,1,0       (A7,1X,I4,1X,I4)
Data line:
Quality (1X,I4)
Default: Quality = 0

The quality code refers to the quality of a spectrum. This code can be specified in two different ways: negative values have different meanings for each code, whereas positive values give a quasi-continuous rating of the spectral quality (0..1000). Low values reflect a poor spectral quality, high values indicate high-quality spectra.

The discrete negative values are defined as follows:

-1 no quality code defined
-2 wrong spectrum
-3 poor spectrum
-4 fair spectrum
-5 excellent spectrum
