11.1-bis LECS event corrections

In the case of the LECS a number of corrections need to be applied to raw events in order to normalize their position and energy information. The implementation of these corrections in XAS is done for analogy to that of the MECS, which is partially unlike the way SAXDAS does it.
As for the MECS all corrections are handled on request, transparently during the primary accumulation of images, spectra, time profiles or photon lists.

However the distinction between mandatory and optional corrections is somewhat different.

These are the kind of corrections and a very brief description of their nature.
In order for corrections to be applied during primary accumulations most of them must currently be explicitly enabled. Otherwise one obtains uncorrected files using raw detector X,Y and PHA.
