ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
caldbyesstring  
Directory containing all the ESAS specific calibration files
 
modeyesint1 
mode – 1: do a single region, 2: do multiple regions with the required input provided in a text file (parameter spfile).
 
detyesint11|2|3
FOR MODE=1 - Detector, 1 for MOS1, 2 for MOS2, and3 for PN
 
maskfileyesstringregion 
FOR MODE=1 - File name for the mask file. This is the mosprefix-obj-im-sp-det.fits file produced for the region by mos-spectra.
 
specfileyesstringspecfile 
FOR MODE=1 - File name for the spectral file for the region.
 
spfileyesstring  
FOR MODE=2 - ASCII text file with the input for multiple regions. The file should contain, on separate lines, the detector number (det), mask file name (mask), and spectral file name (spec) for each region.
