The generation of a given simulation requires the edition of a configuration file in YAML format. The parameters involved in the configuration file are explained here . An example named psms.yaml is also provided in the package.

To execute PSLS, type: -P -V psls.yaml

The option -V makes the program verbose while the option -P generates some plots (the option – -extended-plots  generates additional plots).

As output, the program generates the simulated light-curve in an ASCII file named <ID>.dat, where  ID is the star ID (an arbitrary number defined in the configuration file). By default a single light-curve obtained by averaging over all the cameras is generated. However, with the option -m, the program  averages the  light-curves from the same group of camera and merges (interlace)  them together,  while with the option -f the program returns the individual  light-curves merged (interlaced) together.

Here below two other papers in connection with the simulator:
