PSRCHIVE user documentation: pcm
Optimal selection of pulse phase bins for MEMpcm can automatically choose the best on-pulse phase bins to use as model constraints. These are chosen from the pulsar archive specified with -c filename.
By default, pcm will select a mixture of pulse phase bins with the highest total intensity and the highest polarized flux. To specify a selection strategy, use -B name, where name selects the value to be maximized:
A mixture of values can be maximized by specifying a list of names separated by commas; e.g. to maximize the invariant interval and orthogonality
pcm -c choose.ar -B inv,orth [...]When more than one value is specified, each strategy will be used in turn for each phase bin selected.
