mk_hk_rsp

To find the response function for GS, use the mk_hk_rsp program. Calling the program with -help as argument will list the arguments to the program, which at the time this documentation was written were:

-nm #       ; number of blocks (default: 1000)
-ns #       ; number of events to initially skip
-p #        ; number of events to print (default: 25)
-input s    ; input drive
-tge  lo hi ; ge  time gate limits
-tbgo lo hi ; BGO time gate limits
-egate lo hi; hi res energy gate limits
-line_e #   ; response energy [kev]
-gecal # #  ; off and gain for low res ge
-BGOcal # # ; off and gain for BGO detectors
-nfiles #   ; number of files to sort
-hveto      ; honeycomb suppress gating gamma ray
-addtac2    ; add tac2 (undo on-line sub)

-v          ; version
-help       ; help


A typical script file to run the program will look like this
mk_hk_rsp \
-input /dev/rmt/1mbn \
-nfiles 1 \
-tge 3816 4200 \
-tbgo 1800 2092 \
-gate 2751 2759 \
-line_e 898.0 \
-gecal -7.809905 4.001766 \
-bgocal 18.32 2.6248 \
-nm 100000 \
-ns 1000000
Which is appropriate for 88Y. The data format should be ususal GS data format WITH EVERYTHING WRITTEN TO TAPE (we need the lo-res signals!). The time and energy gates should in the the 'tape' units. The resulting H and K response functions
h_rsp.mascii
k_rsp.mascii
matrices will be in ascii format, i.e., the k_rsp.mascii file will contain lines like:
1 0 2399
1 1 3650
1 2 26
1 3 17
1 4 10
1 5 1

Notice that zeros are suppressed. The accompanying description file, k_rsp.mascii.dm, will contain this information
128
128
sun
ascii
destribing how the data in k_rsp.mascii should be read, in this case: x-dim=128, y-dim=128, date in 'sun' format, and values are in ascii.

(You may change 128 in this file to 256 by hand afterwards if you need to)

You can display the matrices with the 2dplot utility.
