RMF routines

  •  int ReadRMFMatrix(char *filename, long RMFnumber, struct RMF *rmf)
    

    Read the RMF matrix from a FITS file - if there are multiple RMF extensions then read the one with EXTVER=RMFnumber.

  •  int WriteRMFMatrix(char *filename, struct RMF *rmf)
    

    Write the RMF matrix to a FITS file.

  •  int ReadRMFEbounds(char *filename, long EBDnumber, struct RMF *rmf).
    

    Read the RMF ebounds from a FITS file - if there are multiple EBOUNDS extensions then read the one with EXTVER=EBDnumber.

  •  int WriteRMFEbounds(char *filename, struct RMF *rmf)
    

    Write the RMF ebounds to a FITS file.

  •  void DisplayRMF(struct RMF *rmf)
    

    Write information about RMF to stdout.

  •  void ReturnChannel(struct RMF *rmf, float energy, int NumberPhotons, 
                       long *channel)
    

    Return the channel for a photon of the given input energy - draws random numbers to return NumberPhotons entries in the channel array.

  •  void NormalizeRMF(struct RMF *rmf)
    

    Normalize the response to unity in each energy.

  •  void CompressRMF(struct RMF *rmf, float threshold)
    

    Compress the response to remove all elements below the threshold value.

  •  int RebinRMFChannel(struct RMF *rmf, struct BinFactors *bins)
    

    Rebin the RMF in channel space.

  •  int RebinRMFEnergy(struct RMF *rmf, struct BinFactors *bins)
    

    Rebin the RMF in energy space.

  •  void TransposeRMF(struct RMF *rmf, struct RMFchan *rmfchan)
    

    Transpose the matrix.

  •  float ReturnRMFElement(struct RMF *rmf, long channel, long energybin)
    

    Return a single value from the matrix.

  •  float ReturnRMFchanElement(struct RMFchan *rmfchan, long channel, 
                       long energybin)
    

    Return a single value from the transposed matrix.

  •  int AddRMF(struct RMF *rmf1, struct RMF *rmf2)
    

    Add rmf2 onto rmf1.
