Input Files

  1. event list files *_Mn*xxE.FIT (one per CCD/node and per exposure), straight from the ODF (n is 1 or 2, xx is IM or TI).
  2. auxiliary files *_Mn*AUX.FIT (one per exposure), straight from the ODF.
  3. offset/variance files *_Mn*OVE.FIT (one per CCD/node and per mode), straight from the ODF.
  4. optionally, a user-supplied GTI file (entered through ingtiset) with STDGTI extension.
  5. optionally, bad pixels files with BADPIX extension (one per CCD/node and per instrument). They are looked for in the current directory and their names must be P??????????DD????BADPIXij00.FIT, where i is the CCD number and j the node number. A file with matching observation and exposure fields is preferred, but any observation and exposure is accepted.
The structure of files in the ODF is described in [1]. The event and offset files in the ODF may be gzipped (end in .gz or .FTZ).
