rgscombine (rgscombine-1.4.1) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
phayeslist of files  
A list of one or more spectrum files, all produced by rgsspectrum. The task does not enforce any constraint on the combining of dissimilar spectra.
 
rmfnostring  
A list of one or more response matrix files, all produced by rgsrmfgen.
 
bkgnostring  
A list of one or more background spectrum files, if spectra to be combined are of type TOTAL. Spectra can be in COUNTS or RATE (as produced by rgsbkgmodel)
 
filephanofile  
The file name for the output combined spectrum. The default name varies according to the format: combinedspectra.ds.
 
filebkgnofile  
The file name for the output combined background spectrum if applicable. The default name varies according to the format: combinedbkgspec.ds
 
filermfnofile  
The file name for the output combined response matrix. The default name varies according to the format: combinedrespmat.ds
 
rmfgridnoint4000 
The number of energy bins in the response matrix. The default is 4000, as is the default from rgsrmfgen. All matrices in the observation set must have the same number of bins to be combined.
 
minnoreal4 
The minimum wavelength of output for creating the grid over which to combine spectra.
 
maxnoreal40 
The maximum wavelength of output for creating the grid over which to combine spectra.
 
binsnoint3600 
The number of pha channels in the spectra files.
