epatplot (epatplot-1.22) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


Input Files

  1. EPIC pn or EPIC MOS events file (after any selection, e.g. source region) with at least extension EVENTS, columns PI and PATTERN, if withflag=Y then also column FLAG; if column RAWY is present then the average Y-position is used as well; keyword SUBMODE (if present) is used to determine the relevant model pattern distribution (for EPIC pn), keyword FILTER (if present) is only used as plot label, keyword INSTRUME (if present) is used to determine instrument specific quantities (not yet in current implementation).
    If withoutputmask=Y then also bad pixel (BADPIX, BADPIXnn) and offset column (OFFSETCO, OFFSETnn, OFFSETS) extensions are looked for.

  2. optional background event set
