This multi-grid approach is needed to combine precision and speed.
This command reports the energy (see below) of the fine continuum bin in the
first column, and the line transmission coefficient,
$I_{transmitted}/I_{incident}$, for the fine continuum in the second column.
If a line is centered in that energy bin, its spectral label is reported
followed by its mean optical depth.
This is the same as the last entry reported by
\cdCommand{print line optical depths}, see Section \ref{sec:PrintLineOptDep}.
All lines centered on that bin are reported, sorted from most to least opaque.
The resulting output will be huge if the entire fine continuum is saved.
The command accepts a \cdCommand{range} option to limit the size of the output file.
{\it Users are advised to make use of the {\rm\cdCommand{range}} option
to limit the size of the output file.}
If the keyword \cdCommand{range} appears then
the lower and upper limits to the range
of the fine continuum must be entered.
The command also accepts
a \cdCommand{units} option,

Note that in a given energy range, the same number of features is reported,
irrespective of the number of cells merged.
The resolving power of the fine continuum is adjusted when the calculation begins so
that lines of the heavy elements can be resolved.
