rgssources (rgssources-6.3.3) [xmmsas_20230412_1735-21.0.0]

Pipeline useage.

rgssources is usually first invoked within the PCMS or within rgsproc. In PCMS usage the command should be

  rgssources filemode=create instexpid=<instrument file>
srclist=rgssrclist.ds<or whatever>
attstyle=median medianset=<att hist file>
withepicset=yes epicset=<epic source list> doconfusion=yes
primestyle=auto flagepicsrcoutoffov=yes enablefilter=yes

enablefilter ensures that only epic sources within the RGA filed of view are selected (sources out of FOV are flagged); primestyle=auto forces rgssources to choose a prime source in arguably the most reasonable way (see section 3.5 for the outline of the criteria/algorithm or section 7 for the detailed algorithm).
