Among the suite of individual SAS tasks evselect is of central significance.
It serves two complementary purposes
The availability of both features within a single task allows
the user to generate useful products from an event list (e.g.,
create a rates file in the energy band 0.5 - 3 key from the X-ray source
lying within a circle of 10 arcsec radius in the center of the FOV) in
a convenient manner.
- Filter event list data controlled by user-specified selection criteria
- Extract images, spectra, and time series
from the filtered event list obtained in the first step. The filtered
list is selectable for output as well.
