cheese (cheese-0.20.2) [xmmsas_20230412_1735-21.0.0]


  1. Read in parameters.
  2. Check params for sanity.
  3. Loop through each instrument (if exists)
     1. Create FOV image in total band.
     2. If two bands, also create FOV image in soft and hard bands
     3. Populate lists and strings for edetect_chain call
     4. Run atthkgen (if necessary) to make atthk.fits file
     5. Run edetect_chain to create emllist.fits, exp and sens maps.
     6. Run emask to make mask images.
     7. Run region to create background region files. 
     8. Run make_mask to create final cheese maps. 
     9. Clean up intermediary files if desired.
