rmfgen (rmfgen-2.8.5) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

An extended source

Here a choice has to be made between a uniform spatial averaging, made by:

rmfgen spectrumset=spectrum.ds rmfset=myresp.rmf detmaptype=flat

and supplying an image to give the ultimate accuracy by:

rmfgen spectrumset=spectrum.ds rmfset=myresp.rmf detmaptype=dataset detmaparray=myimage.ds

NB: The image supplied MUST be in detector and NOT sky (X/Y) coordinates.
