FTOOLS: The EXOSAT Sub-package


The EXOSAT sub-package of FTOOLS contains mission-specific tasks for the EXOSAT mission. These tools analyze the EXOSAT CMA data reformatted in FITS format, as available in the HEASARC archive.

The following EXOSAT tasks were released in the latest distribution of the HEASARC's FTOOLS package. Each task is hyperlinked to the help file distributed with the task. The same information can be obtained while running FTOOLS by typing the command fhelp {taskname}.
