Hi Helpdesk,
 I would be very interested to know if there is a way to generate a psf image
from the command line? The only way I know to do this is to use calview, but
surely the parameters given to calview could be passed on the command line to
generate a psf image? This would be very useful for scripting etc. 
 Alternatively I believe I've read that the XMM PSF is well approximated by a
king function - is this correct? Is there a simple depedance of the function
parameters on energy and off-axis angle?
 Thanks for your help,
 Ben

Dear Ben,

 unfortunately, there is no way to generate a PSF via command line.
"calview" is a pure GUI interactive task.

 You may find a full description of the PSF, with some analytical
approximations, in the EPIC calibration status document (and
references therein):
