rgssources (rgssources-6.3) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Introduction.

This task creates the RGS source list. This source list is used as the main reference for the definition of selection regions by rgsregion and for the creation of the response matrix by rgsrmfgen. For the latter, knowledge of the source position is required in order to correctly determine the wavelength scale. In pipeline use, the RGS source list is used to indicate those sources for which products should be extracted.
