Although xmmselect interacts in a convenient way with the external plotting programme grace, the user might want to plot, inspect or export spectra and timeseries which have been created in an already closed xmmselect session or via evselect from the command line. As the produced output files are FITS files, the FTOOLS task fv and fplot offer many possibilities here, but also the SAS task dsplot can be used. Assuming that the spectrum or time series is named product.fits:
dsplot table=product.fits plotter='gracebat -printfile product.ps'
dstoplot table=product.fits > product.asc
