Final preparation for spectral fits

If the source has sufficient counts it should be rebinned to allow the gaussian statistics used in fitting software to be applied correctly. An example using the GRPPHA program could be:

> grppha myagn_src.ds myagn_src_grp.ds
GRPPHA[] group min 20
GRPPHA[] exit
 ...... exiting, changes written to file : myagn_src_grp.ds
 ** grppha 2.9.0 completed successfully
