Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
withfilestemnobooleanyes 
Whether to specify the output file names using the filestem parameter.
 
filestemnostringmyfiles 
Stem for the output filenames. A value "myfiles" will produce the files, myfiles_src.ds, myfiles_bgd.ds, myfiles_src.arf, myfiles_src.rmf
 
srcspecsetnostringsrcspec.ds 
Name of the output source spectrum. This is only used if withfilestem is false in which case it becomes mandatory.
 
bckspecsetnostringbckspec.ds 
Name of the output background spectrum. Only used if withfilestem is false in which case it becomes mandatory.
 
srcarfsetnostringsrcspec.arf 
Name of the output effective area file (ARF). This is only used if withfilestem is false and witharfset is true.
 
srcrmfsetnostringsrcspec.rmf 
Name of the output redistribution matrix (RMF). This is only used if withfilestem is false and withrmfset is false.
 
srcexpyesstring  
Expression for extracting the source events.
 
backexpyesstring  
Expression for extracting the background events.
 
tableyestable specifier event list table specifier
A table specifier which must point to an event list table in a data set. It must be in either of the forms setname or setname:tableid where setname must be the name of an existing data set and tableid the name of a table in the specified data set. If the first form, setname, is used, the event data are sought in the first block of the named data set.
 
withbadpixcorrnobooleanyes 
Whether to use bad pixels and chip gaps in the ARF calculation.
 
useodfattnobooleanno 
Whether to use the ODF attitude file to construct position info when calculating the ARF.
 
extendedsourcenobooleanno 
If set true then arfgen is run with parameters which are relevant to an extended source.
 
detxbinsnoint5 
The number of x bins in the detector map.
 
detybinsnoint5 
The number of y bins in the detector map.
 
witharfsetnobooleanyes 
If set false an ARF will not be produced by the task and the geometrical area of the source and background regions will not be calculated and written into the BACKSCAL keyword.
 
withrmfsetnobooleanno 
If set false an RMF is produced by running rmfgen. If true the RMF is taken from the file specified in the parameter rmfset.
 
rmfsetnostring  
The name of the RMF to be used when rmfgen is not to be run. If this parameter is not set and withrmfset is true then the task sets the name of the RMF to be that of the appropriate canned matrix.
