This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
Whether to specify the output file names using the filestem parameter.
Stem for the output filenames. A value "lcurve" will produce the files, lcurve_srcrate.lc, lcurve_bgdrate.lc
Name of the output source light curve. This is only used if withfilestem is false in which case it becomes mandatory.
Name of the output background light curve. Only used if withfilestem is false in which case it becomes mandatory.
Expression for extracting the source events.
Expression for extracting the background events.
tableyestable specifier event list table specifier
A table specifier which must point to an event list table in a data set. It must be in either of the forms setname or setname:tableid where setname must be the name of an existing data set and tableid the name of a table in the specified data set. If the first form, setname, is used, the event data are sought in the first block of the named data set.
How to define the time bin widths. Set to "intrinsic" this tells the task to bin the light curve at the resolution of the frame time. Set to "parameter" it tells the task to use the value in the parameter timebinwidth to define the bin width.
The bin width for the light curve in seconds. This is only used if timebinstyle=parameter.
The start time of the light curve.
The end time of the light curve.
