Saves the spectrum file. In addition, the output spectrum can be grouped or rebinned on output. The default is to rebin the spectrum. This can be turned off by saying
xsel > save spec group=no
Otherwise, the following will be done:
MISSION INSTRUMENT DATAMODE ACTION ======= ========== ======== ======================================== ASCA GIS PH GRPPHA: GROUP channels 0-1023 by 4 SIS BRIGHT RBNPHA: BRIGHT2LINEAR to 512 GRPPHA: Channels < EVTR flagged bad SIS BRIGHT2 RBNPHA: LINEAR to 1024 GRPPHA: Channels < EVTR flagged bad ROSAT PSPC NONE GRPPHA: Bad 1-11, 212-256 GRPPHA: GROUP 12-211 by 10
For some missions the response for the spectrum can also be calculated as part of the save process
xsel > save spec resp=yes
will create rmfs and arfs as appropriate. If the mission calculates arfs differently for point and extended sources then the latter option can be performed by
xsel > save spec resp=extend
Note that if the mission is Chandra or XMM-Newton then this feature will run CIAO or SAS tasks, respectively.
