*timfilter* - List start & stop times of good data intervals

The data example used above has two intervals of good data separted by a long gap. Before doing further time analysis you may want to know the boundaries of these intervals.

input file: rp90_sti.qp

output file: rp90_tim.lis

  xt> timfilter
  Input QPOE file:  rp90_sti           # the default extention, .qp, is known
  Output Time Filter List:  rp90_tim

Start and stop times of data intervals are displayed on screen and written to the file rp90_tim.lis. To use multiple intervals in subsequent filtering run timfilter with parameter merge=yes. To use one interval, run the merge=no and uncomment.

Type help timfilter for instructions.
