eootepileupmask (ebkgmap-2.10.1) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Relation between this task and epileupmask.

The algorithm to estimate pile-ups is basically the same as epileupmask (see its document for detail of the algorithm; that also describes the limitation in the estimate of pile-ups).

This task eootepileupmask offers some command-line options so that a user can get a piled-up pixel mask file etc., in addition to the OOTE mask etc. so that users do not have to run epileupmask again just to get them.
