PIMMS Version 2.2 Release Notes
We have discontinued the support for ASCA SIS image simulation capability. Version
2.2 is a slight upgrade on s2.1a (see the release note for that version below),
but 'make' will call the executable pimms rather than pimms2
(sorry for the confusion this might cause!).
This version contains several
- Updated mission specific information for ASCA instruments,
suitable for the AO-4 period (1996).
- Effective area curves and mission specific
information for SAX, the Italian/Dutch X-ray astronomy satellite.
- XTE ASM
effective area curve.
- Default mission will be determined at run-time: whatever
mission/detector combination that is at the top of the pms_mssn.lst file will
be the default.
- Several bug fixes
