```I am sorry my question is apparently not so clear.
I generated a list of data from a sinc function.  I am not doing the
transform from the sinc function.
If I use Fourier[list of the data], and plot the result, her is where I am
kind of not sure why I don't get a top hat function, even though I used very
fine step for my sinc function data.
