XMM-Newton Science Analysis System
evselect (evselect-3.58.7) [xmmsas_20070308_1802-6.6.0]
Meta Index / Home Page / Developer's notes
In terms of functionality there is a large overlap between evselect and
the FTOOLS FTOOLSfselect, FTOOLSfltime, and FTOOLSXselect. These tools,
however, do not meet the envisaged performance requirements and
do not make use of the SAS infrastructure (DAL, parameter handling, etc.)
It is therefore, recommended to code evselect
newly from scratch.
The selector part shall be based on a recently developed prototype code
which has proven to be very run-time efficient.
The product extraction stage is not believed to be time-critical
and it is anticipated that code from the extractor part in FTOOLSXselect
can be re-used to some TBD extent.
