spectrumsetyesstringspectrum.ds 
Name of the input file
 
badpixlocationnostringnotSpecified 
Name of the file containing the bad pixels, initially this is the event file.
 
withbadpixcorrnobooleanyes 
Whether to use bad pixels and chip gaps in the calculation.
 
useodfattnobooleanno 
Whether to use the ODF attitude file to construct position info.
 
ignoreoutoffovnobooleanyes 
Whether area outside the field of view should be included in the backscale calculation.
 
withbadpixresnobooleanno 
Whether a grid resolution has been specified on the command line. If not set then the task uses the default badpixelresolution set by the arfgen task.
 
badpixelresolutionnofloat  
The grid resolution to use when calculating the area. If set then this overrides the value used internally by arfgen. A value such as 2.0, will result in a faster execution time at the expense of accuracy.
