Hi,

I don't understand the name of the files of the updated canned MOS RMFs.
The notes in the webpage say:
m<camera><ccd>_<version>_<mode>_<patterns>_<start_date>.rmf
but all the files are called in a different way, like for example
m1_000_im_p0.rmf.gz, m1_439_im_pall.rmf.gz.
Could you explain me the meaning of these names (in particular of the number
after m1_)? Thank you.

Ciao

Myriam

Dear Myriam

You are completely right in your complaint. I apologize 
for the confusion in our web pages. The way MOS canned response 
matrices are called has recently changed and we have not yet updated
the documentation, sorry again about that. 

The meaning of the current names is as follows, let me take the 
example you mention to explain it:

m1_000_im_p0.rmf.gz

m1   stands for MOS1 instrument 
000  is the first XMM-Newton revolution number for which this file 
     should be used. The last revolution number is given by the start 
     revolution of the next file in the sequence, e.g. your example 
     should be used for observations within the first XMM revolution
     and revolution 110 (because the next rmf is m1_110_im_p0.rmf.gz)
im   means that the rmf is for imaging mode
p0   means for pattern 0 only ('pall' for patterns 0 to 12)



I hope this helps you

With best regards

Maria
