The badpix task collects together pixels identified as `bad' (whether `hot', `dead', `flickering' etc.) and therefore as pixels containing no useful data. A badpix table, containing information on the position and the type of defect of the bad pixels, is produced as an extension to either the input raw events file or a copy of this file.
