Software for analysing level-1 data from the
Large Area X-ray Proportional Counter (LAXPC)
Instrument on AstroSat



Fortran programs for analysing level-1 data from the LAXPC instrument are provided. These programs are written by H. M. Antia and are provided to users with no guarantee of performance. All feedback are welcome at

antia@tifr.res.in



The software includes two programs,

laxpcl1.f to process the data and generate, event file, light curve, spectrum for source and background as well as GTI file,

backshift.f to apply gain shift to align the background spectrum with the source spectrum and identify the required response file



The software including background and readme files
