Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
caldbyesstring  
Directory containing all the ESAS specific calibration files
 
dirfileyesstringmydir 
File containing the list of exposures, including the directory string, for data to be merged. For instance, if the merging processing is being done in the directory /DATA/merge and the individual observations are located in the parallel directories /DATA/obs1/proc and /DATA/obs2/proc, the file dirlist could have entries such as:

/DATA/obs1/proc/mos1S001
/DATA/obs1/proc/mos2S002
/DATA/obs1/proc/pnS003
/DATA/obs2/proc/mos1S001
/DATA/obs2/proc/mos2S002
/DATA/obs2/proc/pnS003

 
coordyesint1 
Selects which coordinate system should be used, 1: ecliptic, 2: equatorial, 3: galactic.
 
crvaln1yesreal  
Central longitude of the projection.
 
crvaln2yesreal  
Central latitude of the projection.
 
pixelsizeyesreal  
Pixel size of the projection in decimal degrees.
 
componentyesint1 
Component to be cast, 1: count image, 2: exposure, 3: QPB counts, 4: SP counts..
 
alphayesreal1.7 
Assumed spectral index for the filter correction scaling.
 
elowyesint400 
Energy low limit (in eV) for the band.
 
ehighyesint1250

maskcontrolyesint1 
Mask control, 0: no masking, 1: point source masking using the output from cheese, 2: good area masking using the masks produced by mos-spectra, 3: mask from merged source list output from make_mask_merge.
 
xdimyesint2000 
X dimension of the output image
 
ydimyesint2000 
Y dimension of the output image
 
patternnoint4 
pn pattern selection . 0: Single-pixel events only (PATTERN == 0), 4: Single- and double-pixel events (PATTERN <= 4).
