Direct Editing of the Parameter File

While XSTAR will prompt users for the standard parameters, there are instances where you may wish to edit the parameter list directly. These can be edited directly with a text editor such as Emacs or vi. There are also several FTOOL parameter manipulation utilities: PSET, PGET, PUNLEARN, PLIST, & PQUERY, in addition to the GUI tool FLAUNCH.

Note that while there are comments recorded in the parameter file as originally defined in the FTOOLS build, modifying these parameters through the regular XSTAR prompts will cause this parameter file to be rewritten without the comments included.
