rmfgen (rmfgen-2.8.5) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

A point source

The task defaults have been set for a point source and so specifying:

rmfgen spectrumset=spectrum.ds rmfset=myresp.rmf

will create a response function, called myresp.rmf, which has been spatially averaged using a PSF detector map, appropriate for a point source. The output filename defaults to response.ds if rmfset is not defined.
