arfgen (arfgen-1.104) [xmmsas_20230412_1735-21.0.0]

Example 5: Using an RMF dataset to specify the energy grid

By default an ARF is generated at a set of energies specified within the CCF and is compatible with the default energies produced by rmfgen. To use different energies, contained within an rmf file, m1_r5_all_15.rmf, use the command:

arfgen spectrumset=spectrum.pha detmaptype=dataset detmaparray='detmap.ds'
withrmfset=true rmfset=m1_r5_all_15.rmf
