5.19 The RGS pipeline products

The PPS products generated by rgsprods, an automatic version of rgsproc

http://xmm.esac.esa.int/sas/current/doc/rgsprods/index.html

have some differences compared to the files produced interactively although, since SAS v6.0, 1st-order response matrices are also included. The number of RGS pipeline products is quite large (see the Pipeline Products Description document) but may be handled with ease by pointing a browser to the hypertext index files, starting with INDEX.HTM, included in the distribution. RGS pipeline product file names are of the form :
