ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
prefixmyesstring  
Detector and exposure identifiers (eg. "1S001 2S002") for the MOS exposures (in the example MOS1 S001 and MOS2 S002) to be processed.
 
prefixpyesstring  
Detector and exposure identifiers (eg. "S003") for the PN exposures (in the example PN S003) to be processed.
 
verbyesint4 
SAS verbosity level.
 
scaleyesreal0.5 
Energy fraction, which sets the exclusion radius of point sources.
 
ratenoreal1.0 
Flux threshold (in units of $1.0E-14 cgs$ for the exclusion of point sources.
 
ratesnoreal1.0 
Flux threshold (in units of $1.0E-14 cgs$ for the exclusion of point sources in the soft band if two bands are selected.
 
ratehnoreal1.0 
Flux threshold (in units of $1.0E-14 cgs$ for the exclusion of point sources in the hard band if two bands are selected.
 
distyesreal  
Minimum separation in arc seconds between masked sources.
 
elowyesint400 
The low energy for the band or bands in eV (e.g., "400" or "400 2000").
 
ehighyesint1250
