Output source-list set
sourcenonointeger” ” 
List of sources to be reprocessed. NB: these correspond to the order of the sources in the input source list not the SRCNUM column value.
phototypenointeger” ”

outeraanoreal” ” 
List containing outer background-annulus radius (pixels) to be used for each source
axialrationoreal” ” 
List containing aperture axial-ratio (semi-major/semi-minor axes) to be used for each source
panoreal” ” 
List containing aperture position angle to be used for each source (Measured anti-clockwise from the positive x axis.)
backgroundnoreal” ”
